    Hi Folks,
    I've just set up my gmail account.
    I have 634 e-maills queued up to download to the phone.
    In my gmail account, I've selected "Enable POP only for mail that arrives from now on".
    Every time I delete the e-mails in my inbox, another pile come down.

    How do I mark these as read?

    Steve.

    Two things that may help....

    On your iPhone, disable "use recent mode" under settings >mail > account > advanced.
    In gmail, archive all of your old emails and set it up to do so automatically from now on (setting, Forwarding and POP, #2 under POP download).

    Should get you there.
