    I picked up my Droid on release day, and I noticed right away that the push email was great with gMail. I did have one complaint, if you received an email, the LED would blink until you opened the notification up. This was the case, even if you deleted the email on your computer or via another device.

    This was frustrating, as the blink occurred even if the email it was notifying you to had been read and deleted. I spoke to some fellow Droid users who noticed this.

    I noticed, perhaps in the last 48 hours that the green blink will actually stop within 10-15 seconds of deleting the email on another device. If you watch, you'll even see the light make a long or extra short blink, as though its being updated at that moment.

    Was this just a few of us, or is this all Droids? It's much better now!

    I always thought the green LED was a phone "I'm alive" indicator, like old school phones. Ever since I switched to K-9 Mail, I get pink, blue, red indicators, depending on which account has new messages. I'm only checking them on the DROID but they go off when I open the first message.

    I swear I used to have different colored led lights for my different email accounts. I even remember choosing the color. I don't know if I was using a different app or what but I can't find the option again. I'm using K9 for email.

    I installed Docs to Go, and its companion Road Sync/Mail and I believe I saw LED color selection in there. I think its limited to the Exchange level apps. I don't see it as being "configurable" in K-9 nor GMail

    Not that it matters. I already have different sound notifications. I Just know that I did have it but I got nervous and uninstalled a bunch of apps including K9. I switched back to the standard email app but that doesn't allow signatures. Then I went back to K9. It must have been another app I was using in that period.
