No worries. This has been a major frustration, as I mentioned, for a long time.

I lost sight of the possibility that a simple low-tech fix like this could work and trick the BIS interface into the earlier way of configuring Gmail addresses.

One of the hybrid OSes I had installed actually worked properly with Google apps mail, simply it even didn't work with regular gmail.

3. When that add account fails, select the link to provide additional settings.

4. Fix the mistyped email to the correct Gmail address, provide password, and list as the server.

Voila! Deleted items are syncing again, and no awful plugin to deal with.
I just want to thank you for these instructions. Not syncing my gmail was a MAJOR frustration for me....what's the point of having a Blackberry if this does not work!?!?

Your instructions, and the person that helped you, should be highlighted in a how-to somewhere on the forums (if it's not already).

That's why I love this site.

Thanks again.
