Default BIS and GMail IMAP Won't Sync (mark as read)

Please Login to Remove!

I have my BB setup with gmail through BIS using IMAP. I have the wireless sync settings set. However when I read something on it won't get marked as read on gmail. It is almost the same as using pop access. What is going on?

It doesn't sync. In my experience only yahoo syncs read tags. Yeah bummer I know...time moves on.

And actually, pop access for gmail works better anyway. You receive mail instantly and there is nothing really gained by setting it up via imap. I've tried both and much prefer pop for gmail on the BB.
