    Whenever I read and/or delete something in Mail, it stays in Inbox and as Unread if I log into gmail through a browser. I use the browser version outside of my home and it's a big pain to then try to figure out what I did read and what I didn't..

    So I'm just curious if there is a way to keep the real gmail in sync with what I do in Mail.

    I'm running POP in Mail, by the way. If that makes a difference. Maybe IMAP does just this?

    Right on the money. Switch to IMAP. :)

    Does IMAP also sort out how if you send an email from your browser, it shows up in your Apple Mail inbox instead of sent box?

    I had trouble setting up IMAP last time I attempted it, maybe I should have another crack...
