    i have a gmail account setup with a pop account tied to my gmail. on my phone I only have the gmail account. It does show an @ sign when i get pop mail via gmail however it doesnt show up as a number on the mail icon. only when i get a true gmail email does it show up as a number on the icon. once i go into mail and preview the email (pop) it will show as a number on the icon. any ideas?

    after seeing the @ symbol when i go into my email (using the email icon) i have to hit refresh for it to load the email that @ sign was alerting me to. once i do that then it does show as a number. wierd.

    i think the mail icon leads to the main folder for all email accounts. this obviously doesnt autorefresh to correctly show total number of unread emails from all accounts (gmail and pop). The @ sign alerts me that I have new gmail. Then when i load the gmail using the gmail icon then they show up as a total count on the mail icon. Obviously some communication issues between widgets there.

    With 2.1 is there a way to get a little number to show up on the Gmail icon on the home screen?
