Gmail Mobile commits the ultimate email crime

I'm not best pleased with the mobile Gmail client on my blackberry.

Why not?

I successfully compose and send emails with it - but it only looks like that. In fact, I'm not successfully sending these emails and they're vanishing into the ether.

This is the biggest crime any email client could commit. I have no confidence in the application any more. I can't trust it to send my emails.

I do trust m.gmail.com to send my emails, though, so I'll use that. The main disadvantage of the mobile web page over the mobile application is that you can't mark emails as spam. I get a lot of spam. That said; I don't think the application was successfully marking email as spam either.

Oh well. At least the mobile Google Maps application is still my friend.
