    Hey there, I have a Wildfire and basically Im a gmail user (as in, my email service is primarily provided by google and had been since it launched).

    But I hate the gmail app on the wildfire running android, and really like the mail app.

    Problem is, Gmail is currently syncd to both and so if Im not at the phone when I recieve a message notification I will recieve two notifications for the same message (one from gmail, one from mail), and then can view it in both apps.

    in a nutshell, I want to be synced to gmail, using the mail app, and I need to know how to turn off the gmail app, without losing any syncing etc.
