    Since gmail app is no longer supported on blackberry, I used the native email app to get my personal email on my Bold 9900.

    The native email app is showing all my gmail labels instead of just the Inbox. This is absolutely nightmarish since I am subscribed to quite a few mailing lists/groups for which I've created gmail filters. These mails never show up in my Inbox on gmail website or the gmail blackberry app which I used to have.

    However the native email app on my blackberry shows all email instead of just the inbox.

    I requested our IT support person for help and she said blackberry does not support gmail well and I should ask my boss to approve for a non-BB device(our IT supports Android and iPhone as well).

    I hope some fellow BB user can help me resolve this.

    I am afraid I cannot help you as far as using gmail as your native email, but I believe the gmail app still functions as always on the BB. I have it and it is still working. As far as I understand, it won't be upgraded or have support now.

    A few items here... The gmail app does still work, just not supported, the trick is to try and find it and DL it if you can.

    Your IT person is also right the technically Google has never really supported BB devices especially if you had it set up as IMAP which it should be.

    The way to get around it is to use BBSAK and delet the gmail enhanced plugin and its .cod files so that you will have a regular inbox native the way it use to be on all BBs before the enhanced plugin. That is wht I did and got my old inbox back again. You can then set filters from your BB anyway you want and you should be able to control your inbox.

    The only thing I am concerned aboput is that I hope I am reading right what you are trying to do and advicing you right. If not please let me know and I will be glad to research further but this works for me.

    Where can I download the gmail app from? Its no longer available for download on the google mobile website. It directs me to the gmail website.

    I downloaded BBSK from bbsak.org. But how does one use it to delete gmail enhanced plugin and its .cod files. It looks like the enhancement has ruined gmail experience on blackberry.

    This is a really old version and does not even support multiple accounts. Is there someway to get access to a recent version?

    When you install BBSAK and launch it plug in your BB just like you would to your DM and you will see tabs of which one is .cod files, You want to click on that and read all of the .cod files on your device, Scroll until you see the enhanced plugin, I like to find the largest one out of the 3 thatthere are and select and delete it... Your BB will auto reboot andthat is ok, once it does go back and delete the other 2 .cods and this time your BB will not reboot although I like to do it anyway to make sure they are gone.

    Once you do this the plugin will be gone and you will have a normal inbox again, You can even log into BIS and change the name if you like to anything you want like your name and Personal email as example but it is simple. You don't really need the gmail app.
