Default Getting Gmail to ARCHIVE with Wireless Reconciliation

Please Login to Remove!

I use gmail through BIS. I can set up wireless reconciliation so that anything I delete on the device is DELTETED on my gmail. BUT, I don't want to delete messages from Gmail, I just want to ARCHIVE them.

Any way around this? I spend way too much time deleting/archiving messages on both devices.

My best advice would be to create a label in gmail for those messages so you can easily select them and then archive in one step. But in all honesty, gmail is all about NOT deleting messages...just organize them with labels.

My best advice is to use the GMail app to manage your GMail instead of the BB + BIS; using the applet you can report Spam, archive, folderize - everything. It's basically the same user experience as using GMail in a web browser. Having tried both, the app is just plain awesome. You get your GMail contacts and everything right there in realtime.

Another $0.02 from me.

The app is not push email though. A big part of why I got a blackberry is for push. I personally like having the email actually on my device. Its faster to look emails up when you don't have to wait for them to load. I think the app is good for back up and older messages but for recent message I need to get to quick I prefer the built in message app.

I realize gmail is not about deleting. That is why I do not want to delete and rather archive. However, if I delete form my blackberry and sync via wireless it deletes on gmail not archive which would be my first preference

Ok, I was thinking about this and have an idea. It is however a pretty long workaround just to achieve this, but I think it will work.

You need to create another gmail address and add it to your main gmail account. Then, in your main gmail account, set up a filter "To: new gmail address" ---> Skip the Inbox (Archive it).

Now, whenever you want to delete a message, simply forward it to this new gmail "alias" from your BB and it will automatically be moved to your archive folder in your main gmail account. You can then go ahead and delete the message from your device.

Let me know if it works for you.

Yup, I understand -- I personally have my GMail set up to push as well as use the GMail applet; I may or may not respond via the BB interface, but what's cool is that you can fire up the applet and do more advanced features (labeling, archiving).

I see the two as complementary, not exclusive of one another.
