We’re pleased to announce an enhancement to our IMAP/GMail push e-mail service. We now support syncing message flags (aka stars).
Flagging—“starring” in GMail terminology—helps you keep track of important messages that require further attention. Phones such as the Palm Pre, GMail with the “Starred” label, and most desktop e-mail programs provide additional tracking by offering an “All Flagged” or “All Starred” virtual folder to zero in on all your important messages, no matter which folder they are really in.
To date, we’ve tested flags successfully on Windows Mobile 6+, Palm Pre, Dataviz Roadsync (tested on Nokia), and Nokia Mail for Exchange. Apple devices and the Nokia N900, unfortunately, do not make use of flags.
More information about capabilities and device compatibility is available at our wiki.
For any questions and feedback, please visit our push e-mail forum.
