    Hi, I have been trying to set up my Gmail account using IMAP since I get a fair amount of emails on a daily basis. I have followed these instructions posted on google's help site for BlackBerry IMAP setup. My gmail account is setup with IMAP enabled as it should and everything works fine until I try to put in the IMAP email settings for google. At this point I get an "email validation" error.

    I have checked the forum before posting, hopefully I'm not "reposting" another thread that's active.

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    THis is a BIS issue I have seen quite often. Call VZW TS and explain to the issue. RIM needs to force the connect to IMAP rather than POP. Only RIM can do this as far as I know. I have had to tranfer several calls to them about this.
