Ive been using gmail on my iPhone happily for a while. Now for a friend I need to set up gmail on a blackberry.
From reading up it seems you have to enable IMAP for the gmail account. I thought that POP downloads emails from the server where as IMAP does not. Im confused as on my iPhone, when I read an email its marked as read on the server (which I see when I use webmail or mac mail to look at the same email account). However I never turned on IMAP for my account. I went through my iphones default email set up, so is it in fact using POP?
If so, what are the behavioural differences that my friend using IMAP on blackberry will experience compared to my iPhone set up, which seems nice an intuitive.
