    Hi

    When I delete an email on the Hero under Gmail it doesn't delete on my web based Gmail account.

    Can someone tell me which setting to change? Is it on the Hero or under Settings on my Gmail account.

    Many thanks.

    Phil

    After deleting on your handset, you need to 'Refresh' and this syncs back with GMail, at least thats what I do.

    It's not IMAP. It will update via its ota sync, but not always immediately. It's technology, not magic

    By the way: in my humble opinion saying "omg" is just as lame.

    It saves your battery life.

    You'll only notice if you delete on the phone, then go to your PC and see the mail is still there. Not a problem really, either do a Refresh or as trick202 says wait for your ota sync - ie auto-refresh :D

    And my Dad thinks there is some magic going on :rolleyes:

    also.. in the manual it says when you send or receive an email msg, it then goes ahead and does an update on any contact or calendar edits

    see pg107
    (The "note" under Synchronizing Google Apps - "By default, all personal information in Gmail, Calendar, and Contacts will sync whenever you make a change or receive a new message.")


    so.. maybe thats it - you're not seeing changes because you're not sending or receiving emails

    You don't need to refresh. It's just not instant. If you delete it on teh phone the next time gmail auto syncs it'll go. Longest you'll have to wait is a few minutes.

    Another question, does anyone know what the Google auto-sync time lapse is? How long between each auto refresh?

    What about when you delete, and then receive one more email, it shows up saying 2. But once you delete the newest, it'll show up as 1. Then receiving another new email, it'll show up as 3.

    So the ones you deleted weren't deleted. Although they don't show up on your phone inbox, the count will.

    It's a bit nitpicky but I hate seeing an unread count...
