    I have always used gmail on web (browser), but now with the new conversation view in Mail I finally decided to try it.

    So after synching my gmail account in Mail, I went to see how my account looks on gmail.com now and, lo and behold, all stars next to my emails vanished. And that was about 7 years/2GBs worth of emails with different stars :(.

    I tried re-starring some of my emails and after another sync in Mail they got removed again on gmail.com

    What am I doing wrong?

    I want to use Mail, but I still want my starred emails to show as starred on www.gmail.com.

    I think I might have found out - do the starred emails from gmail show up as "flagged" in Mail?

    If so, then I remember unflagging ALL of them. Grrr. Any way to undo this action? (I don't have a Time Machine backup)

    Is there any way to make different flags in Mail to correspond to different stars in gmail?

    There are 7 different flags in Mail and 9 different stars on gmail.com (added via gmail labs).

    not really sure on that

    I have used the flagging in SL, but I think I only ever had the default flag show up on gmail website

    That's what I'm getting in Mail on Lion as well. Kinda useless to me that way :/
