3 Gmail options - pros and cons and issues with one way reconciliation
Using my 8300 with BIS and AT&T I have access to Gmail running in three different way/folders:
1. as Gmail program - positive: great looks and perfect reconciliation with desktop, negative: no announcement that a message has been received, it occasionally hangs up, no shortcut keys and there is no simple way to do a spell check for outgoing messages.
2. Under the folder labeled “Messages” – positive: automatic spell check, announcement of new messages, use of shortcut keys, negative: although I selected reconciliation on menu>options>email reconciliation (see below), the messages do not show as being read or deleted when they are deleted on the desktop (or in the GMAIL program). On the other hand if I delete a message in this folder it gets deleted on the desktop (and Gmail program).
3. as a separate folder called
this one reconciles with the general “Messages” folder, and has the same characteristics of the general “Message” folder it also (obviously) does not reconcile with the GMAIL account.
So my question is why can’t I get the read message function to reconcile. Is there something on the Gmail desktop settings that I have to set?
My email Reconciliation settings are:
Delete on: mailbox and Handheld
Wireless reconcile: on
On conflicts: Mailbox wins
Thanks in advance.
