Default Google Apps Email - different from gmail?

Please Login to Remove!

I had no problem setting up email to basic gmail accounts. All works well. However I'm having troubles with Google Apps email accounts. My phone is the 8100.

I have a domain hosted at GoDaddy which included email. I setup one account, User1, on the 8100 and all worked well. I recently setup Google Apps and moved the email accounts over to Google Apps including User1 and User 2. Then I setup both User1 and User2 email on the 8100.

The first problem was with the User1 account. My guess is that because it had been previously setup on a standard POP3 account, not gmail, I cannot reset it to receive inbox email. I can send email but it does not receive new email.

I setup User2 for the first time on the 8100. It worked well. Just the same as a standard gmail account. No worries.

Attempting to reset User1 settings I selected 'send service books'. Now neither User1 nor User2 receive new inbox email. However, the native gmail accounts I setup previously work fine and dandy.

I'm befuddled why I'm having troubles with the Google Apps email accounts. Can anyone shed any light on this?

This has been discussed so you can do a search for the details.

In short, hosted gmail doesn't have the same capability as does standard gmail for blackberrys. You can download the gmail apps application, it shows as a blue "M" rather than red and/or you can set up pop mail for gmail access through the BB.
