    It you are using Titanium Backup, it's easier to remove gmail

    Got the same error about 8 hours ago. Use titanium backup to delete it. If you donít have this, it is free in the market. Once you remove gmail 2.2, you must restart before you attempt to download and successfully install it. Conventional removal of the gmail app won't work because it is tied into the OS. All the other previously mentioned methods should do the trick as well, but this one I believe is probably the most user friendly.

    But gmail is still missing one major feature: The ability to send e-mails from another address (like one of my pop3 addresses). It will only send from the gmail address. I really wish they would allow us to change the "sent from" field sometime in the near future.
    For unknown reasons to most of us, not everyone can update all apps over the top of previous ones.

    What's New Message Getting Old

    Hi:

    I uninstall-ed 2.2.1 via command line and 2.3 installed & runs just fine -- only problem is that every time I launch Gmail, I get the "What's new in Gmail?" message box popping up ---

    Anyone else see this message box recurring? Any idea how to shut it off?

    Running Sapphire 1.1.0 & LauncherPro
