Default GMAIL - Gmail app or BIS?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi there,

I am a new owner of an 8100 and use GMAIL as my email server. I am interested in receiving email on the 8100, still using the web interface of GMAIL and from the 8100, using the contacts list to be able to send emails, etc. If I use the GMAIL app for BlackBerry, can I do this? If not, should I be setting up the GMAIL account through the BIS?

If I send through the BIS/GMAIL setup - will sent emails show in the GMAIL web based client or do I lose the history?

Thanks,

Corby

You can set up BIS to save your sent emails, so that should not be a prob.
But, your question is kind of confusing. Please clarify what exactly you want to do, and someone here will give you the answer you need....

Sorry for the confusion...

I want to use the blackberry with Gmail, send and receive emails to the Blackberry and have Gmail maintain the history of both sent and received emails whether sent or received through the Blackberry or the web client.

Thanks...

You shoud be able to do it either way. You can download the Gmail app for blackberry, and use that and that will integrate all your sent/received email.

If you set it up using BIS, just make sure you set it to save all your sent messages, and you should be golden....
Let me know what happens.

Thanks for the note....if I use the Gmail Blackberry client, can I use the blackberry contacts to send email to or only those within the GMAIL client?
