I recently am using the mail application and have one of my gmail accounts on it. so all my gmail messages are being sent to the mail app obviously. so today i decided to log into my actual gmail account on gmail.com. and i see lots of unread messages that i actually did read in the mail app on my MB. i was hoping that if i checked the mail on the mail app that it would show on my actual gmail account that it was read as well..or is that not how it works.. a little confused. and yes i am still a noob..
