Default Gmail & Outlook only working 1 way (not 2 way)

Please Login to Remove!

I am not on Enterprise server, but was able to connect to my work email (outlook) by selecting the "other" email set up - putting in email address and password. I know this will not autosynch my calendar and contacts, but the email is working great, except.... when I delete a message on my BB it deletes in my outlook folder, but not the other way around (or read a message on BB and it marks it as read in outlook). This exact same thing is happening on gmail. Seems like a phone setting since it is doing the same thing on two different email systems. Anyone know about this problem? I am a green-horn novice...

Full 2 way sync is only available when connected to a BES, since you are not, this feature will not be available to you. RIM is working on a BIS upgrade and should be available to carriers very soon, hopefully this will be addressed then. But until then unfortunately there's not much you can do.

Oh, sorry, you can try downloading the Enhanced Gmail plugin, which gives you more features for your gmail account, but as for the outlook, you are S.O.L, at least for now.
