I have updated directions to integrate a Gmail account with your BlackBerry. The directions will allow you to get functionality similar to a Yahoo! BIS2 account without reconciliation.
1- Logon to your service provider's website and select your internet email setup section. Edit your BIS settings for your blackberry.net address. Enter the name you would like this email folder to appear on your BB in the "E-Mail Account:" field. Enter the name you want to appear when your reply to messages. Enter your Gmail account name in the "Auto BCC:" field. Enter the email address your would like to reply from on your BB in the "Reply To:" field. Save your changes. The image below shows possible configuration for a T-Mobile USA user.
2- Select the filter settings for your blackberry.net address. Verify there are no filters defined.
3- Old Gmail filter and forwarding clean up. Logon to the Gmail account and select "Settings". Select the "Forwarding and POP" menu to make sure that forwarding is disabled. Select the "Filters" menu and make sure there are no filters that forward to your blackberry.net address.
4- Create a new Gmail filter. In the "From:" field type a dash and then the email address you entered in the BIS reply-to field. Do not place a space between the dash and your address. Select the "Next Step" button. Select the "Forward it to:" dial and enter your blackberry.net address in the corresponding field. Select the "Create Filter" button. The image below is an example of a properly formatted filter. Note on using a different reply-to address.
The example images show someone using the same Gmail account as the reply-to address. If you specify a different reply-to address you will need to forward all mail from that account to the gmail account. Summary:
All messages sent to your Gmail address will be forwarded to your BlackBerry via a Gmail filter.
There is no auto-bcc feedback problem. The filter is simple to create and has no dependencies on other filters.
Messages sent from your BlackBerry will be bcc'd to your Gmail address and will be labeled as "Sent Mail" and "Inbox".
Messages sent from your BlackBerry will have a reply-to address that matches your Gmail address. This will allow you to have email conversations via your Blackberry and will keep all your email messages on your Gmail account.
This would probably work for a BIS1x blackberry.net email. You would need to use bbReply on your BB to specify the reply-to address. Links Stinsonddogxxx8217;s Gmail BIS2 Guide
