    Hello. I don't know if this question has already been asked somewhere, but I couldn't find it so I'm posting.

    I have my Gmail (in browser) set up so that I can receive / send from five separate accounts by logging into my one main account.

    I recently set up my iPhone to do the same, allowing me to choose a "From" address when composing or replying from my phone. I set up the secondary accounts (those I never log into directly) to only update manually, but they are still downloading new messages every time I open the app to look at my Gmail.

    Since I never log into these accounts, but have everything forwarded, there is a huge backlog of unread messages in each, and now my mail app constantly has a red 99 instead of the actual number I want: only the unread messages in my primary Gmail account.

    Is there any way to prevent this? Or do I just have to live with it? Would it be better to download the Google Gmail app?

    Thanks for your help!

    Settings --> Notifications --> Mail --> Choose account, then you can disable badge app for each individual account, as well as handle notifications for each individual account.
