New Q10, setting up Email - Exchange, do I need Active Sync and Gmail setting
New BB users. We just got 2 Q10. One of the things I was worry about was setting up Email with our hosted Exchange.
It couldn't have been easier. I just entered my exchange email address and then everything connected. I then added my Gmail email address and that connected as well. That was amazing. I did this while I was in the store!
However, after I did that, I see that there was an Advanced Setup option for Microsoft Exchange Active Sync, Gmail, and Hotmail.
What's the difference? Should I have used the Advance Setup for my Exchange email and Gmail? Are there pros & cons?
Should I delete my email account and use the Advance Setup?
Any help would be appreciated. I have other questions, but I will post those in a separate thread.
Thank you very much.

Yeah on BB10, Exchange is one of the core of the OS and this OS is built specifically to suit EAS, so you're on the right path!
The other settings e.g. Yahoo/Hotmail/Gmail are basically BB's default setup protocol for their IMAP accounts / POP3. As you're using the EAS so you won't need to worry about that at all i believe.

Thanks for all your input. Right now, email is flowing as is with the setup I used. For example, when I setup my Exchange account, I didn't use the EAS option under Advanced Setting. But it's working so I'm not going to futz with it. There is so much that this phone can do and being a new BB user it will be a journey, but we're catching on so will be posting more questions

I looked through the same Advanced Settings last night, but I remember seeing those same fields while setting up my Gmail through the "basic" setup. I'm still trying to figure out how Active Sync is supposed to work. I tried reading some of the 15-page long threads, but it became near unbearable to read because of the "this is how mobile email should be done, so get used to it" crowd. My personal email is through Gmail, and my business email is through Google Apps email. I'm pretty sure I have both of them setup as IMAP. I get email just fine, but I've noticed that even when I read them on the Q10, they remain Unread on the desktop. If it's supposed to Sync, then why is that happening?
Sorry to hi-jack.

Same thing here, I delete an email on my Q10, it goes away from the Gmail Inbox, but stays in the All Mail folder in ther server and never appears on the Trash folder, which goes against the IMAP rules for Gmail. The old 9900 would simply delete it on the Inbox and All Mail, and place it on the Trash folder. Unbelievable that the Q10 has this bug. Few people notice it because they thin the email is "gone" and they rarely go to their All Mail, but try going to All Mail and you will see: they are all there!

1. go to your Gmail settings and turn off auto-expunge
2. set the delete behaviour to move message to trash
3. go to label settings and UNCHECK "All Mail" so it does not show up in IMAP
that's it. might take a 24-48hrs to work, but for me it was instant. If you want to test it (press refresh on your BB). of course the downside is that "all mail" folder does not show on outlook at anymore.
