    I have the samsung captivate. When I first got the K9 mail it worked fine. But it seems that after an update a few weeks ago my new mail icon seems to be stuck. I do get my notification and when I check the mail, it does show new mail the first time. But after I check it and clear it from my mail, it still shows that I have 2 new message or so. The number keeps growing. Any way to clear this?

    I've seen that issue as well... I think it popped up in version 3107 or 3108 maybe. I see 3109 just came out... I'm going to install it and see how it looks..

    FYI you can download current and previous versions here (in case you don't already know) Downloads - k9mail - Project Hosting on Google Code

    I also have this problem on an HTC desire. Have had the same problem on versions 3.602, 3.604 and 3.706.

    Anyone found a solution to this?

    I realise that this may be stating the obvious but have you made sure that you have disabled notifications on the stock Android, built-in, email app?

    Sorry, I misread the original post. My problem is that the K-9 mail icon does not change when I get new mail. Should the icon (that stupid metal dog) not be different depending on whether there is or is not new mail?

    Thanks.

    My "little doggie" stays the same but I get an icon in the status bar and an audible tone.

    I don't like having to manually clear the notifications in the status bar after I have opened K9 and read the mail. Do you know if there is a way around this?

    Are you sure that those notifications aren't from the built-in, stock, email app. Go to Menu and open email and make sure all notifications are turned off. Then go to K-9 and turn notifications on.
