Default Help with Gmail

Please Login to Remove!

Before I get slammed with "Do the Search" answers, I did do the search. I found plenty of information, but nothing specifically answering my question. So, if anyone has any specific ideas, I would greatly appreciate some help.

I am using 8820 on ATT's network. This is my first BB and I need help in setting up my email. I have 2 accounts that could go IMAP or POP and have them both setup in BIS as IMAP. The delay though is in the 15 minute range. I also have Gmail account that I rarely use. So, I was thinking about setting up Gmail to POP from both accounts and then setup Gmail in BIS.
My question is how would I set it up so my replies will have the same email as the one I am replying to? As in, Gmail checks my [email address] and [email address] emails. I get email on [email address] and reply to it. Receiver gets my reply and sees it come from [email address] and not [email address].
I tried setting up Gmail to use the same address as the email I am replying came to, however, it seems that it only works if I use Gmail's web interface or Cmail's app.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks.

You can come close on that solution, but not complete.

The problem is that with your BB, it will ONLY reply back from the account from which it was received. You cannot change that.

You can set your default "send using" email address for new emails, but that default will not affect your replies.

You can setup your [email address] and [email address] address in BIS, and then tell BIS to NEVER foward email from those addresses, therefore they will then be set as an account in your BB to send from.

Honestly, I never the notice the 15 min delay in BIS. One, it is rarely a full 15 minutes because your email senders would have to know that 15 min schedule for it to be so.

I'm not sure if this will help, but I find it easier to just set up the seperate accounts and then pull the perspective email under those account settings. Sure this means that you will have to set up multiples, but it makes it easier to keep it all straight as to which account the message belongs too. I'm only speaking hypothetically, but that's how I'm set up at home with Thunderbird. I'm not certain that RIM devices are capable of this sort of functionality, but I can't for the life of me imagine a reason why they could not.

You can't have more than one BIS account assigned to a BB.

Within that BIS account, you can have up to 10 email accounts, which is what I recommended above, but it still will not REPLY FROM as he desires.

The email is always going to show where it comes from surely, if the recipient choses to read the header.

you are incorrect. if you go to the website:

(blackberry.com/mycingular or blackberry.com/go/vzw) and edit the email settings you can change the "Reply From" email address for any account.

For example, you can have gmail incoming, but change the settings so that you reply from your mycingular.blackberry.net email

That is correct, but it will not apply to the OP's situation. He will have TWO pop accounts coming to ONE gmail.

Which do you suggest he puts in the REPLY FROM at the BIS?

Thanks everybody for the ideas and help.
I guess I'll stick with having 2 accounts configured in BIS for the moment. I just wish that it would not take this long to get through

I don't use a gmail account on my bb but why can't you just sign up for another gmail account??? Send IMAP#1 to Gmail#1 and IMAP#2 to Gmail#2....you will have the instant delivery from both imap accounts through gmail to your bb. with the gmail accounts can you set up a new "reply to" address so they see your IMAP address instead of your gmail? since I don't use one, I don't know if that is an option.
