How to Force a BlackBerry to Sync Messages

Updated July 20, 2017

Your BlackBerry can synchronise the status of the email messages on your device with your BlackBerry Internet Service (BIS) mailbox. This synchronisation process is called "reconciliation." Reconciliation deletes and files messages you've modified on your BlackBerry, syncing the changes to your mailbox. BlackBerry devices can reconcile wirelessly with the BIS mailbox automatically when you make a change or manually. If you have disabled automatic wireless reconciliation, you will have to force the Blackberry to reconcile messages before the changes appear in your BIS mailbox.
