    Do this: +(Add to home)>shortcut>gmail label

    See the list of all the gmail folders? Is there an app that will bring up this list without having to add all these icons to a home screen individually? Clicking the folders in this screen just adds them to the home screen, but I don't want that many icons. I just want one icon to launch a list of all these items. I have searched this forum and the market to no avail....

    thanks!

    Like the Gmail app?
    Menu - Add to Home - Shortcut - Program - Gmail?

    Once you are in that, just press:
    Menu - View Labels

    Maybe I don't know what you meant...

    Acutally, I never realized the function or apparently tried the "view labels" menu... that's exactly what I was looking for.

    thanks! I'm just a bit "slow" I suppose...

    I literally just found that... about an hour ago, because an email that I thought I fwd'd to my work account, still hasn't come through, but I deleted it after the fwd...

    Can't find it anywhere, and can't see gmail on wk. comp.

    I'm stuck... It's f'in lost in space now.

    On a related note, is there an actual Gmail widget? One that shows the unread mail count? Not the HTC mail widget, I know that one does it.

    There should be. THat is what we were talking about...lol.

    Add> Shortcut> scroll down your list... "Gmail" is all it says, I think normally it shows up as a red and white envelope.

    Should be in your list of "All Programs" also...

    No, that is just a shortcut to Gmail. I'm talking about an actual Gmail "widget" that will display the unread email count on the main screen. I tried both the "Gmail" and "Inbox" shortcuts and they are just that, static icons, they don't display anything like a true widget does. The HTC widget will but I don't like using that program because it is not 'push'. Am I missing something?
