RIM releases Enhanced Google Mail (Gmail) Plugin for BlackBerry

August 22, 2009 | By | 99 Comments


I just added a new email account to my BlackBerry this morning, only to find that RIM has released their Enhanced Google Mail Plugin for BlackBerry. This plugin allows you to flag messages as spam, perform local and remote searches, archive emails, and view related emails as a threaded view. Download this Plugin OTA (Over the Air) on your BlackBerry at blackberry.com/gmail.

The Enhanced Google Mail™ plug-in for BlackBerry® smartphones introduces an advanced level of email service integration for BlackBerry smartphones. It supports additional Google Mail™ features that provide BlackBerry® Internet Service subscribers with broader access to their Google Mail accounts while on the go.  The Enhanced Google Mail plug-in is optional. Existing and new Google Mail integrations will continue to function without it.

Note: The Enhanced Google Mail plug-in requires BlackBerry® Device Software 4.5 or later and Google Mail integration within the BlackBerry Internet Service. The Google Mail integration must use IMAP, not POP, to function correctly. Google Mail accounts integrated after March 2009 use IMAP. Deleting an existing account and re-integrating it will ensure that the account is using IMAP.

BlackBerry smartphone users with existing integrated Google Mail accounts must re-associate their email accounts to receive the link to download the Enhanced Google Mail plug-in.


Add and remove labels and stars on email messages

  • Report spam email messages
  • Perform local and remote searches
  • Archive email messages
  • View related email messages as a single conversation (threaded view)

Note: Synchronization happens in one direction, from the BlackBerry smartphone to the Google Mail account. This means that some changes that take place in the webmail UI are not reflected on the BlackBerry smartphone. These include:

  • Applying labels and stars to email messages in Google Mail after they are retrieved by the BlackBerry Internet Service.
  • Labels that are renamed in Google Mail are not applied to the corresponding labels on the BlackBerry smartphone. The new label is synchronized to the BlackBerry smartphone, but does not replace the existing label.
  • Email messages that are marked as read, archived, or spam in Google Mail are not marked as spam on the BlackBerry smartphone.
  • Labels cannot be created, renamed, or deleted using the BlackBerry smartphone.

Download the Google Mail Enhanced Plugin on your BlackBerry by pointing your browser to blackberry.com/gmail.

    This really doesn’t fix much. There had been a previous way to set up your gmail inbox on the BB so that if you delete a message, it will be archived on your Gmail Account.

    In fact, this no longer works with the plugin. FAIL

  • Jean

    The fact that this is still not a two way sync and it works only with the gmail specific inbox, makes this plugin useless.

    Google & RIM, It is a shame that email service from the “do no evil” company does not work well with the “powerful email device”. It is time that both companies work out fix the basic two way sync before adding the google bells and whistles.

    I just uninstalled it from my storm, it is a serious pain in the a##. It creates a mess, my gmail account indicator should unread email but when I went inside my gmail inbox it is empty, sometimes I see them other times I don’t. Sometimes the email will appear under the general Messages folders, other times under sms/mms folder. The gmail program provided by google is much much better.
