Enhanced Google Mail for BlackBerry

Posted on 22. Aug, 2009 by in BlackBerry

The same day that Google announced they’re Apps Connector for BES users, BIS users get some love as well with the Enhanced Gmail Plugin for BlackBerry, this plug-in adds some additional Google Mail features that have not been available until now unless using the GMail app for BlackBerry.


  • 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)

This appears to be available to all new and existing Google Mail accounts, including any domain using Google Mail. This plugin does require BlackBerry Device Software 4.5 or later, which if your reading this your probably have, and Google Mail integration within the BlackBerry Internet Service, and the account must be set up with IMAP.

I ran into some small issues when trying to remove and add my email account, but it turned out I just needed to check the “All Mail” for it to show in IMAP.  The plugin also adds syncronozation from the device to your web account, but unfortunately not the other way around.
