    Hi.

    I'm new to the magic, smartphones, android and these forums :D.

    I was a bit disappointed with the included email client on my magic (UK vodafone), by which i don't mean the gmail app but the "other one". It seems it doesn't like to mark emails as read.

    Anyway, i thought, since the gmail app is pretty neat and i have a long-time gmail account i'd use it to manage all my email accounts via POP (hotmail and yahoo and one other gmail).

    I've set this up fine and online, via my desktop and i've set up a different label for each account with different colours. (i.e Hotmail = red, yahoo = green) However, when i view my emails on the magic, all the labels are the incorrect colour...in fact they are all blue. Why is this? Any way to fix this?

    Any help would be really useful.

    Thanks for looking

    Pete

    There is no fix, this is just the way it is for now. If you need to see these label colors on the go, you can use the browser version of Gmail, as it has those label colors.

    The onboard app is a simplified version of gmail, so it doesn't have all the features and perks. Heck, before cupcake it didn't even have checkboxes. But that should clue you in that the color coding is probably on it's way.

    I realize this topic is a bit old but can a moto droid user tell me, does android 2.0 add this functionality or no? (the properly colored labels in the gmail app)
