    maybe I'm just ******ed and don't understand exactly what the OP is asking or what that link to google's forum is talking about but...

    what I'm experiencing is that when i read an email then mark it as unread on my computer, my droid will recognize that action (i.e.: marking it as unread) as a new email and give me a notification. This happens with both my gmail and yahoo accounts and doesn't really bother me at all.

    I also get a few email notifications for my yahoo account but no new emails are shown in my inbox on my phone, but when I check from a computer, there are a couple of new ones in there. However, with all of the known POP email issues this phone has, I was never really too concerned with this. Hopefully it gets fixed in the next OS update, but whatever...

    Like Phoenix said, drop a comment and star that issue. If we all bitch about it, maybe Google will one day fix it.

    In the forum dog house.
    There is another possibility;
    I do not know about Gmail, but I have about ten email accounts linked to my site and some were configured on my server to leave a copy on the server. This may be why you keep getting notifications about the same ones. Try opening the emails and see if the redundant notifications cease for them. Then you will at least narrow it down to a Droid-specific configuration problem, or an issue with the server setting or the configuration of the program that another computer set to recieve those email account updates.
