    I've set my phone up to check my gmail which works great, and I setup a label link to my gmail inbox, works great. But is it possible to get a unread counter on that icon? I tried to setup a shortcut to "Mail Inbox" but that just comes up and askes me to choose a mail provider (MS Exchange/Pop), and as I'm not using these, doesn't seem to want to let me go any further...

    I know it's probably something stupid, so can anyone knock me in the right direction!

    Actually it isn't possible on the icon itself, BUT I found a widget the other day that does. it takes up the same amount of space. Works nicely. Just search 'Gmail unread count' in the market :)
