Default Forwarding Gmail to blackberry.net account

Please Login to Remove!

Can someone give me the step to forward my @gmail.com account to my @tmo.blackberry.net account? I selected Forward a copy of incoming mail to @tmo.blackberry.net and nothing so far has been delivered to my blackberry. If I send a test email from my @gmail.com account to my @tmo.blackberry.net account is almost instant but no lock fowarding my @gmail.com account to my tmo.blackberry.net account. Any help would be great. Thanks in advance.

The first step? That pretty little red search button up above. Please learn how to use it. It's been discussed here ad nauseum.

But, because I'm in a great mood, here's a place to start:

Gmail BIS2 Setup

Enjoy.

Okay, first go to Fowarding and Pop in the Gmail Settings area, and make sure to select Disable Forwarding (you do not want to use the basic Forwardng method), then cick Save Changes at the bottom of the page. Then go into Filters and set up any filters you like for various spammers or people you don't want to hear from. Things like Has the Words: xxxxxx, and chose to skip the inbox and delete them. Then after you get all the filters you want set up corectly, make one last one like this: Has the Words: in:inbox and click Next Step, it will give you some sort of error message as not being a recognized command or something, but ignore it and contiunue anyway. On the next screen choose Forward it to: and insert your BlackBerry email address, the one ending in @mycingular.blackberry.com if you have Cingular, or something similar if you have T-Mo. What this does is filter out all email you told it to using the filters, and then ANY and ALL email not filtered out by them will go directly to your BB, in about 2-5 seconds. That's the best way to go. I've been doing it for months and it's awesome. Instantly pushed spam free email to the BB.

The address you are sending to is set up with Gmail so it will not get thru. The mail will be in the Gmail box but not frowarded to BB. You have to send the mail from a different e-mail addy - it will not pass e-mails from/to yourself thru.

I know that does not make sense but go to someone elses computer or have a friend send the e-mail- you cannot self test the Gmail setup.

If sent to your blackberry.net addy they will go thru, assumingyou do not run them thru gmail. But that is not a test of gmail because it skip gmail and goes direct to bb.

Maybe it's just me but I don't like to leave ANY trace of "myname@carrier.blackberry.net" ANYWHERE. Therefore, I don't even use filter to forward my Gmail to my BB that way.
Instead, I just set up pulling from BIS web client and enable POP forwarding option (again, no blackberry.net address entered). I get my Gmail e-mails that way.
I am just paranoid in case someone hack into my Gmail account and gets my direct blackberry address.
It's a bit slow but works fine for me since I don't ever use my Gmail address and thus don't get any spam.

I didn't set any filters on mine. I have pop and forwarding enabled and have my @tmo blackberry email addy inserted in the box for my gmail to be forwarded to. I've done this for the past year or more and never had a problem. With the previous bis version, it took gmail about 20 minutes to come through using the polling. I hear others say its faster now with the new bis version. I haven't tried it.

Brian, if you're still having problems, you can google talk me at phillyslickster or send me an aim or yahoo messenger message.

Definitely don't poll - but that's not the issue here. Your method only allows Gmail to filter spam that Gmail considers spam, and not things that may look legit but you personally do not want to receive. For instance, if you get mail from Monster.com or some other job board, or from a department store you used to want email from, but no longer do, Gmail will let it through and you have to delete it yourself. If you set it up the way I described you can set your own filters for those things and never get them again because your personal filters will kill them. And you still get instant email, but this way you get the normal spam killers, plus your personal ones.

That's up to him, but I haven't had any issues. Gmail has done a great job filtering on its own for me. Some of the others, especially my comcast email have been spam magnets. That's why I stopped using the comcast email account. The same thing when I tried yahoom. Anyway, that's neither here nor there. I was just saying I set mine up the same way he did and hadn't had any issue receive my gmail instantly. Yet, there are some that prefer to poll their mail through bis. Personally, I don't.

Sorry if someone has already posted this, but go to your gmail account settings and make sure you enable POP3 settings for your messages. the default is disabled, and after I switched the settings it was working like a charm.
