    Because Gmail doesn't do a good job of receiving emails sent to my POP3 accounts, I would like to use the Mail app on my Eris to receive all my mail, including my Gmail.

    I was able to set up my Mail app to receive my Gmail, but how do I keep the Gmail app from receiving mail going to my Gmail account?

    Thanks,

    Chimpie

    You should be able to go into sync settings and turn off the sync for gmail. I would imagine that that would stop the mail from coming in. I've never tried it though.

    Good recommendation. I forgot that Google was wise enough to break Contacts, Gmail and Calendar into three categories.

    Thanks!
