Default use Gmail Filtering to sync/push to BB

it is taken from

I have discovered that using the Gmail filter to foward mail to your
BlackBerry works like a Charm! Most importantly it gives you push
Gmail on your BB and keeps your mail insync with your Gmail account.

Here's how it works:
A. Use the Gmail filter to foward msgs written or to your

B. To have your sent mail written from your BB to copy to your Gmail.
On the Blackberry Web Client, As you have set
the filter, it only to fowards mail written to:, not the bcc: you
won't get your sent mail coming back to your BB.

Three problems occur when you use Gmail's forwarding not the filter

1. it also fowards the SPAM. Most SPAM that arrives on Gmail isn't
written to: your address. SPAM as we know, can be annoying on the BB.

2. If you want to store your sent mail on Gmail, the sent mail comes
back to you.

3. Gmail's mail forwarding is smart, so if for some reason it can't
reach the address it's fowarding to. It stops sending mail to that

Using the Gmail filter you can foward all your mail to your one gmail
account and use the Gmail filter to forward the mail to those addresses
to your BB. Using the filter also avoids the three problems listed
