    Hi again,

    I opted to use the native Android (HTC?) imap client for my Gmail account simply because the widget shows me an unread message count. That aside however, the dedicated Google Gmail app is much better (it looks nicer imho and also has the "Archive" button - in the imap client I have to "Move to..."/"[Gmail]/All mail").

    And the question: is there an way to have an unread email counter while using the Google gmail app? I would like something that will update as soon as the email is synced to my device, and decrement as soon as I archive an email in the google app.

    Many thanks, Dan

    I use both, the gmail app for acctually reading email (and for notification, look in the settings) and I use the HTC app with imap in order to get email history into the People app.

    I just installed an app from the market called "Gmail Unread Count"

    It's a widget.

    Give it a go...
