    New subscriber and my maiden post ... here's hoping someone can help with this issue:

    I recently got a Droid Eris and the guy at Verizon synced my gmail account with the phone at the store. I took it home and started playing around -- didn't know there was a difference between the "Mail" application and the Gmail application. So, I double-synced my gmail account with IMAP. Figured out how to delete the account from IMAP without too much trouble. BUT -- the IMAP sync changed the names of the default folders in my gmail account, as accessed from my home PC, (they are normally, Drafts, Sent, Trash). They are now labeled "[Imap]/Drafts", etc. I want them to revert back to the original default names! I disabled IMAP in my gmail account settings, but to no avail. This is a mostly cosmetic problem, I realize, but I'm totally anal about stuff like that. Any advice, please!?

    EDIT: I figured it out. I feel pretty dumb for overlooking it, but Gmail had duplicated those folders, with the duplicates labeled as [Imap]/xx. I just deleted the duplicates. Sorry!

    Hi Just to say if you want to sync your mails with the People app you'll need to keep the imap account in HTC mail as the Gmail app will not syncs with the People app. You can still use the Gmail app and just disable to notifications in the HTC Mail app. You can hide the IMAP folders in your gmail settings.
