View Full Version : Marking emails as new

02-28-2009, 12:36 AM
Weird question... I have a lot of valuable information in my g-mail account and I love the BB search function. On either POP or IMAP, if I mark all e-mails as new in my gmail account (over 4500), will they all sync with my bold and I can then mark them all as read so I have access to them if I ever need to find something on the fly? Also, will that slow anything down? Thanks!

EDIT: Or should I just change the POP forwarding to available for ALL mail instead of mail that arrives from now on?

Your BB will only fetch new mail. Old stuff is not going to get polled by the Blackberry mail servers and will not be delivered. Some people have claimed success on IMAP by moving mail (marked as new) from their inbox to another folder, and later moving it back to their inbox. Dunno, but there is no easy way of getting old email short of resending to yourself.
