View Full Version : Archiving Items using Gmail IMAP

02-09-2009, 03:14 PM
I don't care to use the Gmail application, but have this issue with Gmail through IMAP: When I delete an item from my BB, I want it to be archived in Gmail, not deleted.

I understand that I can delete from my BB but leave it on the server and archive later, but that sort of defeats the purpose of using IMAP, IMO.

Any suggestions?

Without using their app you have no means to flag the message. Essentially that's all your doing within gmail

Don't think it can be done... Deleting something does just that.

You'll need the app to archive. Unless go for a hosted BES solution where you have the "file" option, but BIS only supports the Inbox

Thanks for the suggestions. Maybe I'll need to reconsider using the app after all.

So, now that 2.6 has rolled out, has anyone noticed that it's not archiving anymore based on the special "tags" we had to create?

I have the options enabled correctly in "Advanced IMAP", but the blackberry still deletes the message, not archiving it.
