[RESOLVED] Getting enhanced GMail plugin to work with 191???
Set the SMS and Email boxes to Separate in the General Options of Messages Options.
Now you should see the gmail options available when hitting the BB button when viewing your messages in the gmail account.
Has anyone been able to get the Enhanced GMail plugin to work with 191?
I've tried several different ways of setting up my GMail on BIS from PC and from phone, but I still don't see any kind of enhancements, it looks the same as the regular blackberry email.

Reason: resolved issue
If you have your gmail account setup to deliver to your phone via the blackberry enail setup you should see a secondary email folder for your gmail account. if you access your gmail via that folder you will sese the enhancements. You can star, label, and archive your messages from within that mailbox. If you access the messages via your regular message inbox...you won't see the enhancements. Hope that makes sense.

Well when I access email using the gmail icon, I see no enhancements(star, label, archive, etc) it looks the same as the regular BB email.
True, that is why I need to get the plugin to work

But in .191 I have un-hidden the gmail account folder because when I access my gmail messages in that folder I have the gmail enhancements available. I can select a message, hit the BB button, and in the options I can archive, label, and star messges.
It's a mail icon that appeared after I setup my gmail account at BIS.
EDIT: OK I got it to work. Had to set the SMS and Email boxes to Separate in the General Options.
Apparently this effects the gmail plugin options even if your still going into the separate email accounts/icons.

I am also unable to get the enhancements. It won't load it when I upgraded to .191 and in the email it sends you saying to upgrade to enhanced google mail plugins. it says sorry your phone isn't compatable when about to download it. I just want the OP to kow they aren't alone with this problem.
