    Hey everyone... first time poster, long time lurker ;)

    I have a Droid (froyo, not rooted) on Verizon, and I use it to access 5 email accounts (yes, all are necessary). Two accounts are through Gmail, and the rest are non-google accounts using IMAP.

    Here's the issue: I use multiple devices to check my email, but when an email has been read on another device, the Droid notification stays on the phone. Basically my Droid shows email notifications every time I turn the screen on, even if all the mail has already been read somewhere else. Is there any way to set up the Droid so that the notifications are removed once emails have been marked as Read on the server?

    I don't think there is any stock functionailty for this, but was wondering if anyone can lead me in the right direction (maybe an app?) It may seem silly for some of you, but this prevents me from having to clear my notifications every time I'm about to get up from my desk, otherwise I never know if the notification on my phone is for new email or old email, and I'm on my phone all the time trying to figure that out so I don't miss something important.

    I appreciate the help!

    Unfortunately, I believe the answer is no.

    Notifications do not get refreshed, so you have to actually clear them, or click in that individual notification in order to make it go away.
  3. I have the same issue to a degree. Doesn't it clear after a while though. Usually takes a while iirc.

    I am experimenting on this though, right now. I'll see what I find out.

    and I hear ya on needing all the email accounts. I have 3 I HAVE to have. it's all part of the seperation and organization of the schedule.


    are all things I can think of right off the top of my head that all have schedules that are important and need to be sorted through. My emails and calendar syncs very nicely and my jorte calendar therefore, looks like a multicolored mess to the casual observer, but the colors, based on which email account they come from, prioritizes events for me.


    all over the place

    ^ This.

    Can you not use the read/unread status of the email to see what's new?
