Default Bb 8800

Please Login to Remove!

i've recently received my new BB8800 on vodafone UK

i do not have a BES so i use BIS with VodafoneUK

i have registered to receive my gmail on the BB, however using the desktop software i can synchronise contacts and calendar to my outlook, which is where i access my gmail.

however, it doesnt let me synchronise emails, it only allows me to create filetrs so so i can see on BB or outlook everything sent or received, but it doesnt let me synchronise

can email synching be done for gmail on outlook?

thanx

No, the Desktop Manager does not Synchronize emails from any account.

With the BIS plan you should get your e-mails delivered to the BlackBerry and to Outlook (if outlook is set to get the e-mails from GMail). And, when you delete an e-mail from the BlackBerry it should delete from GMail. I haven't got it to work the other way, where if I delete it from GMail it deletes from the BlackBerry. I don't know if it is a true two-way sync. Is that what you were asking? I thought you were asking if the Desktop Manager will perform the sync, and it won't. The Desktop Manager only is there for synching PIM informtion like the Calendar, Contacts, Tasks and Memos.

Yahoo! Mail does do that, though. If I delete on the BlackBerry it deletes on Yahoo!, and if I delete on Yahoo! it deletes from the BlackBerry.
