    I don't know if it's just me but the mail on my touch and the mail on gmail don't sync. If i open an email on my touch, it still says unread when I check my mail at gmail.com and vice versa... is there any way to change this, it's really annoying.

    Nope, Gmail is not IMAP. It uses the POP protocol. All this does is pulls messages from the server.

    I had this problem momentarilly to fix it go to your gmail account and click settings then POP and there should be something along the lines of save/delete/copy mail opened via POP server set this to delete and you should be away

    go to Gmail site and eit

    You have to log in to your Gmail account and go to Setting/option
    Enable POP mail there, it should be fine. I did that and it worked.
