    I am using the gMail application on my Droid for handling all of my emails. I have a couple of questions:

    1) I have some POP accounts routed on to my gMail account. Is there a way to change the colors of the label for the routed mail such that the POP Account 1 label appears in red, the POP Account 2 label appears in blue, the POP Account 3 label appears in green,etc. (on the Droid and/or in web gMail)?

    2) Is there a way to get the routed POP emails to end up in their own folders on the Droid?

    3) Is there a way to adjust how often the POP accounts get scanned by gMail? (I'm guessing that this will be set on the gMail web account somewhere - if it is possible)

    Thanks!

    1) There should be icons attached to the subject line, corresponding to the POP account (blue rectangle). Are they not visible?

    2) If you "Import" the POP accounts, vs. "Check other POP3", the folders will be created automatically. Otherwise, go to Settings, online, and create a label. Then create a "Filter" were any messages "To" your POP address, are forward to that Label.

    3) I believe Gmail is sort of "Push", or a variant of. Mail sent to phone as its received.

    Yes, the blue rectangles are. What I'm looking for is a way to change the colors depending on which account the mail came in on.

    Thanks! I found this out after I had originally submitted this thread.

    I'll have to test this out, and see how much of a delay there is after I send an email to one of my imported accounts.

    Thanks!
