    On my Gmail App on Android I would love to find a way to colour mail that is urgent or read or not.
    Is it possible, as they all seem to merge together.
    Or else they all go to the Important folder, which I cant seem to get rid of:eek:

    nope, not gonna happen in gmail. you can try other mail apps, but there is nothing you can do within gmail. there is no setting or option like that. you have to live or die with gmail....lol

    you can email or chat with a gmail expert:

    I kept trying by creating labels and making them different colours
    But couldn't figure out how to get the emails to go into them :oops:
    So dragged them in myself.
    Doing that made my ELibrary books show up in the mail list. A different colour!
    So I can see them better. Which is great.

    But all the other mail goes into the important folder
    Which I have tried and tried to get rid of
    Both on the pc and in the Gmail App!:oops:

    You have created LABELS which is the first step. Next you need to create FILTERS so that emails from say, a certain sender or that mention a specific topic or word etc will go to whatever label you assign them to. I'm not sure if you can set up filters in the Gmail android app, you could try, but you can definitely do it in windows and then its just a matter of accessing it from whatever device you want to use. No more dragging and dropping.
