    Is there any real benfit of using the Gmail app vs. adding the account in BIS?

    Not sure, too lazy to add it to BIS. I know the Gmail app I can report spam, star e-mails, etc. Basicly the same as using the web interface but it's cleaner and faster for me. I just don't get notified of e-mails as they come in but that account isn't a real active one for me anyhow.

    4...
    My gmail account
    My work account (but that one doesn't work properly because our mail is messed up so I might delete it)
    My yahoo account (I might delete it, I'm trying to change everyone over to my gmail account)
    My blackberry email (that only one person has, but it's a very important person)

    They all get pushed to my phone and I love it!

    To me, that address (yourid@crackberry.com) should give you pop3 type access. I feel that you a not getting the 'full-service' of that account. I can't send out emails 'as that address'. A shame really...

    I completely agree - although I guess I shouldn't look "a gift horse in the mouth" I would love to use the address more - I haven't really used it (crackberry email)...

    In answer (absurd but it makes sense to me ) - I'm on BIS:

    2 gmail
    1 business
    1 BB
    1 misc.

    To me, that address (yourid@crackberry.com) should give you pop3 type access. I feel that you a not getting the 'full-service' of that account. I can't send out emails 'as that address'. A shame really...

    I spoke to Kevin about this email addy as i wasnt sure how robust it is for forwarding. I am sure in time to come there maybe access to it rather than being a forwarding tool...

    It has never let me down so far!

    If you use gmail, you can set it to send as your crackberry.com address. Now the down side is you have to be logged on to Gmail to use that. Can't do it straight from the berry. I don't have the Gmail app on the berry, so not sure if that would work or not.

    So are you saying if you have the gmail app, and have that open it would allow you to use the @crackberry email?

    I have to say i happy with what i have with regards to a redirect!

    It's worked for me so far. You just have to go into the settings and set it up.

    Gmail is email service provided from Google. On Blackberry's it works as push email, therefore you get it instantly. It's free too.

    I have three: Gmail, Crackberry, and the mycingular@ address. I tried Hotmail but it wouldn't take.

    Well i never.....

    What if you forward to a Gmail account and then onto the BB? Or do you have to have paid subs for that forwarding service

    I don't think Hotmail has a forward option...

    I agree - I know AOL gives you all kinds of trouble with forwarding - I'm not 100% sure but very close, that they don't allow it either. Those types of features from those two providers are very much alike.
