    Gmail sync based on labels???

    OK, I've searched and found a few threads that kinda dance around this topic, but I couldn't find exactly what I was looking for, so here goes:

    I'M GOING TO GO F-ING CRAZY IF MY PHONE DOESN'T STOP NOTIFYING ME OF NEW FORUM EMAILS!!!

    I have all incoming forum email (from this and other forums) going through a filter in my gmail account (based on the senders email address) and being labeled with a "forum replies" label. I don't want to mark them as read with the filter because I still want to see them unread in my Outlook.

    On my Droid in my gmail app account settings I select "labels" then "forum replies" and have the "Sync none" radio button highlighted. In my mind, I take this to mean that I will not receive on my phone, or be notified of any gmail with the "forum replies" label.

    BUT I STILL GET THE EMAILS!!! And they even show up with the "forum replies" label in my droid inbox. I guess I could stop auto subscribe on the forums, but I don't want to.

    Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

    PLEASE, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD HELP ME!!! LOL

    Yea...I hear you....I get a few myself.

    Edit...Just checked Have just under 3400 labeled as Droid.....

    Change the gmail filter to also "archive" the message so that it is removed from the inbox -- then it will ONLY show up in the folder (have the label) that you are filtering it to.

    OK, I'll try that. But, will I still receive those emails in my outlook inbox the same way I would if they were not archived?

    I guess I can just try it and find out.

    Thanks for the tip.

    Srothkin...YOU ARE MY HERO!!!

    That works perfectly! I still get the messages in outlook as unread and bold, but they are not synced to my Droid. I LOVE it!!

    That's a bit (a lot) unintuitive, but hey, at least it works now.

    They will not show up in the inbox. In Outlook they will show up in a folder with the same name as the label.

    Yep, exactly. They come in exactly as they always have (since they've always been labeled). I just didn't realize that they needed to be archived to be removed form the inbox.

    Thanks again!

    No! ...I want email notifications, that's not the problem. I just don't want them on my phone. That's all.

    Problem solved though, and I'm a happy camper.
