New Email Account Settings Don't Show Up On Device

Hello, I am configuring my boss's Bold for him. We had a POP email account setup and working. I went into the email setup on the device (which launched a browser and connected to T-Mobile). I changed the name of his previous account, then set up a new IMAP account (gmail through Google Apps) with the same name. The setup completed fine so I deleted the old account. If I close the settings and go back in it shows the new account and the settings appear correct.


Here is the problem: even after taking out the battery for 10 seconds and restarting the device still shows the old messages in his inbox and does not show the new inbox. How do I force the device to start using the new IMAP account and flush out the old messages from the leftover POP account?

Options > Advanced > Host Routing Table > Menu > Register.

if still nothing...
3. resend your service books from your carrier BIS site.


Then, with the BlackBerry device powered ON, remove the battery a few seconds and then reinsert the battery to reboot
