Default use Gmail Filtering to sync/push to BB

it is taken from http://blackberryblackbelt.blogspot.com/

I have discovered that using the Gmail filter to foward mail to your
BlackBerry works like a Charm! Most importantly it gives you push
Gmail on your BB and keeps your mail insync with your Gmail account.

Here's how it works:
A. Use the Gmail filter to foward msgs written
to:urn...@regularaddress.com or urn...@Gmail.com to your
@tmo.blackberry.net.

B. To have your sent mail written from your BB to copy to your Gmail.
On the Blackberry Web Client, BCC:urn...@Gmail.com. As you have set
the filter, it only to fowards mail written to:, not the bcc: you
won't get your sent mail coming back to your BB.

Three problems occur when you use Gmail's forwarding not the filter
forwarding.

1. it also fowards the SPAM. Most SPAM that arrives on Gmail isn't
written to: your address. SPAM as we know, can be annoying on the BB.

2. If you want to store your sent mail on Gmail, the sent mail comes
back to you.

3. Gmail's mail forwarding is smart, so if for some reason it can't
reach the address it's fowarding to. It stops sending mail to that
address.

Using the Gmail filter you can foward all your mail to your one gmail
account and use the Gmail filter to forward the mail to those addresses
to your BB. Using the filter also avoids the three problems listed
above.

Default T-Mobile minimum for POP3/GMail

This is really helpful. I'm currently a voice subscriber on T-Mobile. All I'm currently looking for is POP3 access (send/recieve messages from GMail account) via my RIM7230.

Any clue what service "upgrade" T-Mobile will require me to add to my plan? Obviously, the CSR had no helpful information.

Please advise.

Hi Sean,

Gmail is one of the best routes to go. I wouldn't go with the @provider.blackberry.net, incase you do decide to switch providers, it will make things as difficult as switching numbers. When notifying people of the your e-mail address. It's best to use a portable e-mail address

As for upgrades to your plan, take a look at this thread, as it's very tricky with T Mobile

Awesome. Thanks, Blackbelt.

OT: Have you ever noticed that GMail often blocks messages that aren't spam. I primarily use Outlook, but twice a day I have to go into the web client's Spam folder to "despam" newsletters from Reuters, Bloomberg, Dow Jones, Wired, et al. ?

Sean, interesting that brings me to the next trick I discovered.

That happens to be the gift and the Curse. The only way to have your newsletters not caught in the SPAM filters is to use the Gmail forwarding not the filter forwarding. The regular fowarding doesn't think, it just forwards what ever is aimed at your [email address]. Unfortunately that includes the SPAM.

The regular forwarding stops forwarding if a large file(e.g. MP3) or the @provider.blackberry.net can't handle the traffic at that moment. The only way you will be able to get the forwarding to work is by logging on to your gmail from a computer and resetting it. That's a bad problem because if you will have to wait until your by a computer to start to get your mail again.

I found a solution to preventing Gmails forwarding from stopping. That is fowarding the mail to a e.g. @yahoo.com then forward the @yahoo.com to the BB. The main thing is the yahoo fowarding doesn't stop to see if the mail is going through and won't stop if the mail doesn't pass through at that moment unlike the Gmail forwarding. That also helps as adding a second filter for your mail to go through.

It's a bit tricky but simple. Use Gmail filter forwarding, then fowarding to another address e.g. yahoo(works fine), then from the other address to the BB. 3 steps. Until Gmail offers push mail that's a current method in the mean time.

Sean,

another thought, you could create individual filters for the newsletters you like to foward to your BB.

good workaround. Thanks.

Forgive my ignorance, do you pay for the volume of email forwarded to your BB device? EG, would it make sense to initiate a brand new GMail account that did not have any newsletter subscriptions flooding the inbox, and possibly jacking up my monthly T-Mobile bill?

Good point, it was my mistake for overlooking that. I have the SBCYahoo DSL, so I don't pay for the forwarding. So I wasn't sure if it was a pay for service or not.

Good observation, I guess, the next bet is to find a free reliable server to use to forward your mail.
