Default Gmail and the 8700

Please Login to Remove!

Ok I finally switched to forwarding, because the POP would never work, my only question is ---> If I could get the POP working would the Gmail mail messages be threaded (conversation view) when I log on using a computer, or does it just stay as a new messages as it does with forwarding?

Thanks,
Jbsooner

Default POP3 and Gmail

I currently have mail forwarding from Gmail to my Blackberry, but I've used Gmail POP3 with a desktop client and a Pocket PC. The mail comes in the same way as other mail does for that particular mail client...so for a Blackberry I would expect it would come in as separate messages. The only place I think it will appear threaded is within the Gmail web client itself.

That is what I am talking about, when you use forwarding the messages are not threaded in the Gmail web client, when you send repy's back and forth from the BB.

Default threading

Sorry I misunderstood. Good point...I'm not sure.

I think it just renders Gmail useless if you can't go from BB to webclient and not see it in threaded view. When I was using my treo 650 it would work like that, but not with the BB. I tried to get POP working, but I would never receive my messages. I though maybe with POP it would thread the messages. Just thought someone would know.

On another note, I have the unlimited BB plan, does that include websurfing too?

I think there are other threads that discuss the unlimited BB plan but I was told that it included unlimited wesurfing. I use the web browser to check gmail and that works fine for me.

Try this it works pretty well...I also use the messenger client from these guys and it works pretty well too.
