    I am trying to configure a smartmailbox for Gmail and Yahoo, but Gmail has a folder called "All Mail" and an "Inbox" -- the same e-mail shows up twice. How do I avoid getting a duplicate entry?

    Contains: Messages that match "all" of the following conditions:

    Message is Unread

    Message Type is Mail

    thanks.

    I got it -- gmail configuration -- labels -- hide "all mail".

    I found it -- gmail configuration -- labels -- hide "all mail".

    No, that is not going to work. My smartphone (BlackBerry) sent me a message telling me to enable "All Mail" in the gmail settings webpage and that it was necessary to activate again. So, I am back to square one with the same email showing up twice in my smart mailbox -- because it shows up on gmail in both the "inbox" and in the "all mail" box. Any ideas how to configure the smart mailbox to eliminate the duplicate, without hiding the mailbox inside gmail settings on the web?

    Okay, I think I got it.

    Contains "messages" that match "all" of the following conditions:

    Message is Unread

    Message is in Mailbox "Inbox"
