Why doesn't mail.app update unread message count?

    I use GMail IMAP in the mail application. Everything works great but one thing I noticed is that my mail unread count doesn't update if I read something on my iPhone. The only way I can get the application to update is if I quit it, then reopen it. If I hit "get mail" it doesn't update.

    Is this normal?

    It's definitely not normal, but I'm having the exact same problem and can't figure out a solution.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Go back to the area you want to post in, the big list of all the threads, and there should be a "new thread" button on the top left similar to the "new post" button on this page.

    Dumb question, but you're force-syncing mail right? I've found that GMail doesn't always catch IMAP changes very quickly and sometimes the mail on the phone/GMail web app/desktop mail app all need a refresh to catch what changed.
