(The thing where I'm confused is the setting where it asks you what to do after getting the message via POP: I chose the setting where it leaves it on the Inbox)
NOw if I deelte an email on my BB or mark it read, would it reconcile so when I'm on the desktop it marks the email as such? Would I have to m ake any changes to the settings on the Gmail website?
Thanks for any pointers. This is one of the more confusing concepts on the BlackBerry because of all the upgrades to the BWC/BIS. When I am beginning to "get it" they upgrade and make more changes :-D
First, yes you can choose whichever setting that you want (archive or inbox) as that does not affect the delivery of the email to your device.
Now the reconile part, from what I have found there is no simple way to do this and it so far is quite aggrevating. If you delete an email from your handheld it goes into the trash, no matter if you already archived it from the desktop or placed into a different "personal" folder. Now when you go to your trash from the desktop and move the email back to your inbox and then try archiving it again it still will go to the trash if you delete it again from your handheld. A real pain in the a$$ especially for those emails that you do want to keep.
As for the read part, at least with Tmobile, read or unread from the handheld it still always shows as unread on the desktop.
I have made numerous changes on my handheld and in Gmail and nothing seems to change the above, unfortunately this may make me go back to using Yahoo email as the reconciliation part worked much better. The only problem with Yahoo is the delayed email that has been happening more times than not lately.
If anyone has any ideas I am wide open to listening.
