    Hi Everyone,

    I expect to be joining the crackberry world when I adopt a new Storm tomorrow. I have a question, however, about email.

    I use Gmail for email, and I understand that I can have that email pushed to the Storm or any other BB for that matter. I think I correctly understand that the email will also still be visible online at my gmail account. Right? If I view an email on my BB and perhaps even reply to it I assume also that the fact that I have viewed it and replied to it will be visible if I log into my gmail account from my home computer. Assuming all the above is correct then here is my real question.

    I get at least 100 emails a day. A lot of them are crap that I do not read right away or sometimes not at all. However because Gmail has unlimited space and great abilities for searching, I keep EVERYTHING. I have at least 20,000 unread emails and many more that have been read. So if I start having my emails (and I assume it will not push all the old emails to the bb) on my bb, I am thinking that I MUST delete some daily or the memory of the bb will be exceeded eventually? And if I do delete them on the BB is there a way I can keep them on my online gmail account?

    For me my Gmail has become MY memory. I keep all kinds of stuff there and when I cant remember something a few clicks brings it up. You may say I am crazy for keeping eveything but honestly it has saved me more than once.

    So, any input would be appreciated.

    Yeah it will push all new emails to your BB. But, if you can direct the "not so important" ones to a different folder or junk mail, they might not come to your BB. I was trying to receive email from my GF and never got them. Come to find out they were getting sent to junk mail. After I saved her info in my yahoo address book they all started coming to my BB. Hope that helps. Welcome to CB and good luck!

    Am I correct that you must delete emails from your BB because of space? Am I also correct that this deletes them from (your yahoo) my Gmail account? Is there a way to avoid this?

    Yes, they will take up your memory. But there is an option to only delete them on your BB and not on your computer.

    Okay, great. So for me then, I just want to set up some filtering so the less important crap does not get to the BB.

    Yeah, but I'm not 100% sure it will work. Good luck.
