I don't worry about the BB staying in sync as I start from the top and scan till I see one that is familiar.
this is another interesting solution. unfortunately, it's just a workaround (as is the one i suggested). it's especially frustrating when the right solution is right there where everyone can see it.
Keeping inboxes in sync at all time is the ideal solution for the true mobile worker... with my 650, i had a third party IMAP provider i sent my email through to give me just that functionality. IMAP has its own weaknesses of course, but it was flawless and fast (which the BB isn't). i'd move 10 messages out of the inbox and into a PST folder and the chatter mail app would show the changes in seconds. COOL. The way i work is that i keep my few dozen most important emails in the inbox at all times. My action items so to speak. And to have quick and easy access to those at all times is what is most important to me and i'm sure to others. i leave the office for a few hours and 40 emails come in. Those are easily shuffled off to their respective PST folders so that the few dozen remain in the inbox for easy access on laptop, desktop or palm/BB. Unfortunately, just not possible right now with the BB...
