    Gmail has always been pretty quick in my book

    @ gimik I do believe that can add filters so it doesn't do that

    Lucky, I can only get POP gmail to push instantly. I've tried many times to get IMAP gmail to work properly but its always delayed and never syncs right. E.g. Messages I read on my berry still show up as unread on the web interface. No amount of service books or searching for a fix have been successful. Until I figure it out, I'm stuck with POP.

    I have heard that yahoos IMAP email works very well on berrys. I suppose I could forward my gmail to yahoo mail but I hate workarounds I'd rather a true fix!

    yeah, I've been fiddling with a yahoo account too. I don't think it's IMAP exactly, but rather some special Yahoo-BB arrangement (I might be wrong), and yes it works very well, instant delivery, full two-way read/delete sync.

    But my gmail account is already established and I didn't want to change (plus I get gmail IMAP'd to outlook & calendar sync).

    I was playing around with a second gmail account and noticed I was getting instant IMAP with that, but not my primary gmail account, so I deleted then recreated my primary gmail account from my BIS, and tada

    (still no Gmail->BB read sync and delayed Gmail -> BB delete sync, but we're getting there..)

    Just to let you know, the new BIS 2.6 is supposed to be implemented this weekend. It will use Gmail-IMAP as the default with instant push and no need for the sent-mail filter.

    You will have to remove and recreate your gmail accounts in the BIS for this to work.

    According to another thread, it was supposed to have occurred early this morning EDT. But I don't know if it happened since I still received a few emails around 3 A.M. EDT.

    I work in IT. The six hour outage window likely included troubleshooting and backout time if needed. If there were no problems with the implementation, then it is likely they did not need the entire outage window.

    BIS 2.6 has been implemented on my AT&T account. After re-creating my gmail and google app accounts, I have instant one-way sync (BB->Gmail) reads/deletes, instant push delivery, and no need for sent-mail filters.

    Do you have to re add your gmail account using the imap setup instructions (blank pw, manual settings, imap.gmail.com etc.....) Or does it auto to imap now?

    It seems, when I set up the gmail account the standard way (not manual) it turns on both POP & IMAP... but it still works if I turn off POP...

    this has always been the case for me,
    - send myself an email from BB, message goes into Gmail "sent items" but never hits either Gmail or BB inbox
    - send myself an email from Gmail, hits both GMail & BB inboxes...

    If I read an email on Gmail is it supposed to send the 'read' status to my blackberry? Or is it 1 way only, BB to gmail (which does work) for reads.
