    Question How to setup Gmail as IMAP account?

    I have dozen of filters on my Gmail to archive and sort email especially mailing list messages. I tried to create filters by using the "Subject Contains" option and did entered the mailing list tags [demo-users] which appear at the start of every subject but it didn't worked and email are still filling up my BB inbox.

    I deleted the Gmail Inbox and then tried to use the "Other" option while adding new email account but when I entered my gmail address it again took me to the default BB Gmail Sync mode instead of asking me the POP3/IMAP server address.

    I want to add my Gmail account as a generic IMAP account so I get only the message which are dripped in Inbox of Gmail excluding all the archived mailing list dsicussions.

    Any clue?

    If you try to setup a gmail account on your device with incorrect credentials (like using the wrong password, or mistyping the email address) you'll be presented with an option to provide the advanced settings yourself.

    When you get to the advanced setup screen, use the correct credentials, and specify the email server as imap.gmail.com. It should automatically select port 993 and to use SSL, but if not choose those options as well.

    In a way, its already using IMAP rather than POP. Blackberry will sync your "All Email" folders from your Gmail.

    I am not sure about this but I guess login in to gmail from your phone might help you

    Hi Wu-wei ( or anyone else who can answer this )
    I'm trying to setup IMAP mail using our Davmail server. The only difference in the setup is that the port mappings have been changed for security and other reasons like the existing ports are used, and for the love of Mike I can't find any concrete example of setting up mail with a different port number. ( I tried servername:10143 but this doesn't work - it does work on Android and IOS devices )
    Your post hints that port numbers can be specified, if this is true where can I find it?
    Thanks
