Syncing Read/ Unread Messages With Gmail

I use AT&T BIS to read my Gmail in the regular BB mailbox (not the Gmail app). This is my only active email account. My deletes sync up fine between my Gmail and my BB. But, when I read an email on my Gmail account, it is not shown as read on my BB. The opposite is also true.

 

Is there any way to get the read/ unread flag to properly sync between Gmail and the Curve using the normal mail box? Thanks,

Re: Syncing Read/ Unread Messages With Gmail

I doubt read/unread status can sync for emails in Gmail and vice versa. I have the same issue. Apparently wireless reconciliation for read/unread status doesn't work for Gmail. It works fine for my Yahoo account though. 

 

I think it's a feature that does not support for Gmail.BlackBerry had an article posted on this: http://www.blackberry.com/btsc/dynamickc.do?externalId=KB13509&sliceId=SAL_Public&command=show&forwa...

Re: Syncing Read/ Unread Messages With Gmail

My results have been a bit inconsistant.  I have four Gmail accounts, now all set up as IMAP accounts.  Two that had been set up as POP accounts and I recently changed to IMAP are still getting slow delivery, and only one is syncing Reads between the BlackBerry and the Mailbox.  Two that I have always had set up as IMAP get nearly instant delivery, and sync Reads between the BlackBerry and the Mailbox.

 

Instructions for setting up your BlackBerry to use IMAP for your Gmail account are here:

I also have a Yahoo Mail Plus account ($25/Year) set up as a POP account, and I get near BES like delivery, Reads sync both ways, and if I move email from the Inbox to another folder, it goes away on my BlackBerry.

Re: Syncing Read/ Unread Messages With Gmail

Thank you very much for the suggestion. If it comes down to instant push vs. syncing read/ unread messages, read/ unread wins for me. I set up the IMAP as laid out in the link and it works great. Thanks
