Question Anyone using BIS, GMail and a POP3 client?

Please Login to Remove!

OK,

I have been searching through the forums for a while now, but have not really found an answer to my question.

I am just about to get a new curve for my wife (I use an 8800 on a BES and have used BBs for many years now) but this will be the first BIS blackberry I have used.

The curve will be on Vodafone in the UK.

At the moment my wife has a gmail mailbox which she accesses using POP3 from her mac. Gmail is set to archive mails once they have been accessed via pop.

I plan to hook her gmail account directly up to the Vodafone BIS using the configuration at BlackBerry Internet Service

My question is:

If the BIS is accessing her mailbox and retrieving mail to forward to her 8300, then when her mac mail client accesses the mailbox, what will it do?

I suppose the real question is:

How do you configure GMail so that it works with both a desktop POP3 client and a BIS and both get copies of all mail?

Sorry if this is a bit of a noob Q, but I have been searching on this for a while...

Joe.

It looks like the GMail option to enable POP provides you with instructions on how to direct GMail to send copies of whatever hits the Inbox to your Mac. Between that and enabling GMail on BIS, you should be okay. You could also specifically instruct GMail to forward a copy of everything that hits the Inbox directly to your Blackberry's email address-- that's what I have done with my Earthlink account, and the benefit is that it transfers immediately without waiting for the BB to do its normal polling.

Just configure Gmail / BIS to "leave a copy " on the server.
This is how mine works now with Yahoo and Gmail. BIS gets it and then it is popd by Outlook

I use BIS with Gmail in conjunction with Outlook POP3 setup when I'm at the house and have no issues / special configuration.

Keep the POP3 setup as is - there's no need to change anything. Simply login to BIS, add the Gmail account and she should start receiving gmail push-style going forward.

Once the email is pushed to the device, Gmail won't mark it as read / archive or anything. It'll delete it if you delete it on the device but otherwise will not sync read versus unread / archived / etc. Once she opens the mac client she'll download the email as normal and it'll archive it from her Inbox to her All Mail on the web client as well.

Hope this helps . . .

That is perfect thanks.

It all seems to just work - very clever.

Just need to work out how to stop sent messages showing up again on the device, but I have seen a thread on that here somewhere.

create a filter that prevents receiving messages from your gmail address

I just switched from a hosted BES to BIS. I set up a Gmail account that I forward my POP3 account to. What I send from my PC (Outlook) seem to go into email limbo. I do not get a return on the PC but I also they do not arrive anywhere. Any ideas?

Should the Outgoing Mail Server in my Outlook be set to the gmail address?
