I've always been using Gmail using the browser on my map. But while switching from snow leopard to Lion a few months back, I decided to give the mail app from Apple a go. I added my accounts without a problem, however Gmail seems to have 700k 'unread' emails. Note: I do use labels and such and have a few other Gmail accounts forward emails to the main account. So there are probably tons of emails I missed (such as those send by Twitter which I label and don't land in my inbox as important mail) over a long period of time. Is there an easy way to get rid of that number in the sidebar? When I right click and check 'mark all as read' it basically crashes or is busy marking them as read, which can take hours or even days.
