    What exactly does the gmail option "Labels: select wich labels are snycronised" do? Does it mean if I had a label set up and told it to go directly to that label and skip the inbox that i would still get an alert on my phone? The reason i am asking is because before i got this phone, i had a label in my gmail called "craigslist". Everything dealing with craigslist went into this and skipped the inbox. Thats worked well but i still need to be alerted when i get a new offer from craigslist. Will that snyc label option do what i want it to do?

    It will not notify you. At least it did not for me. I ended up using the multiple inbox lab on gmail on my PC. I have multiple folders, than a Inbox folder that has EVERYTHING. Not the ideal solution, but it does get the job done.

    In your case it will sync that items that you autoarchive, just not notify you. Or are you asking about the multiple inbox feature on gmail from a PC?

    i was asking about the multiple label sync thing. I wish they would let you set it to alert you of new mail from each label.

    I had a label set up for these forums, which forced the "New Reply" emails to skip the inbox. I don't need a notification every time someone replies to a thread. However, the notification emails recently started dodging the filter, and I can't figure out why for the life of me.

    Labels are simply folders!
