    Hey, just a quick question. Can I sync my read messages on mail.app with gmail? For example:

    I'll open up mail.app and see a message "Subject 1 - jondoe@me.com" and read it. But when I go to my gmail inbox on Firefox, it is still unread.

    Can I sync them so I don't have to read messages over again? Thanks!

    By default when setting up a gmail acct it's pop3, but what you want is IMAP. I think there are instructions in gmail settings that shows you how to do it
