Problems with IMAP syncing
I am having problems with IMAP and my GMail accounts on my BB (Bold 9000 OS 220.127.116.116 I think) (I only have GMail based accounts so far). Basically, it syncs one way only as far as I can tell. I have the enhanced GMail installed.
If I mark something as "read" on my 'berry then it marks it as read on my computer. If, however, I "flag for follow-up" or "add a star" to an email then it does not show up (even days later) as reciprocated in my GMail inbox or on my computer. Similarly if I read an email on my computer, my blackberry does not show it as read. Grr.
IMAP really is not hard to set up, dozens of email clients have it figured and it's been around a while, why is RIM (and 'berries are famous for their otherwise great email facility) so behind on this?
Is there a way to get my bold to sync IMAP properly?
Also, the GMail plugin is hideously inconvenient because I can't access its capabilities from the normal message list. I have to open the separate inbox first. This is annoying because I have all my email in one unified inbox accessible with the "m" key... Any work-arounds?
Any help would be much appreciated, thanks
