Default Gmail IMAP Support

Please Login to Remove!

A recent article over at download squad (Gmail gets IMAP - Download Squad) reveals that gmail is rolling out support for IMAP. Anybody enable this yet and get better syncing on their BB?

I just checked my gmail settings on Google and I do see the IMAP configurations. Haven't tried anything yet w/BIS

Try logging out and coming back in, worked for me. It's under settings in gmail.

Now how do I use it best with my 8800?

I'm curious to see if Gmail will "push" the deletions or message states from the desktop onto the Blackberry through BIS. That would definitely be nice.

How a BIS user can benefit from this? I'm curious.

Best,

Wont it allow us to have a two way sync now - it'll allow us to delete from the bb and delete from the inbox and mark items as read, etc?

You already have two-way message reconciliation (of deletes) with Gmail.
It has nothing to do with POP or IMAP.

GMaill allowing IMAP will not necessarilly provide read/unread mark reconciliation.

Basically, GMail now supporting IMAP has absolutely no impact on Blackberry users.

That was I thought. Is there any user with imap activated that can confirm or deny our assumptions?

Gmail does not have 2 way sync. If I delete something in Gmail it does NOT delete on the BB. Only if I delete it from the BB will that be done on the GMAIL server. The addition of IMAP should allow all of this if BIS supports full IMAP. I would like to try and setup my Gmail account as a plain IMAP account but as soon as BIS sees gmail.com it does not allow it.

Yes, it does.
It's been working for several months now.
Deletes from BB reflect almost instantly in GMail... however deletes from GMail take hours to reconcile back to the device. It will eventually reconcile though.

This has been discussed and confirmed here in numerous threads.

Never worked for me. I have the boxed checked in my account setup and I have the BB set to reconcile. Things have sat there for days.

Do you have GMail set up as POP through BIS right now?
If so, I'd say that would likely be your issue.
Don't use POP, or IMAP. Turn them both off in GMail. They aren't needed for BIS.

I do not.

Time will tell. If they support full IMAP then we will get the Yahoo like integration. Lets see what happens.

Where do you all see this setting? I don't have it in mine. Do you have to have a Google Domain Account?

Update: Never mind. In the article it says it will be rolled out for everyone in a couple of days.

I have the same issue where it doesn't delete. I will disable POP but when I set up my GMail account via BIS, for some reason POP re-enables itself in GMail. I just tested it again and it happened. If I disable POP, then I don't get my e-mail messages. So I can vouch for this issue. I have waited days for it to delete and it never does. This is my setup, so I won't say it doesn't work for everyone because obviously some do have it working. But for my account, I have never been able to get items to delete from the BlackBerry when I delete them from G-mail.

I have had POP enabled in my gmail account. Just turned it off, and no gmail is pushed to BB? Is POP then needed in gmail?

I believe it does need to be enabled. Or at least I will say MY e-mail doesn't come through unless it is enabled.
