Gmail AND email both?
So all I do is occaisionally use Gmail for the forwarding of my office email. And I get two notifications, in two inboxes. One in the Gmail. One in the email (yellow icon). One is unnecessary! So how do I make one stop?

Thanks, Chuck, just came back to move this since I realize it's in the wrong section...too late, admin will have to do it.
Delete the work account? I don't have it on there, tho', only forwarded to my gmail address. That's the only thing on there, and yet both the gmail and email services report, and both require deleting the same message.

Well, if you go into the Mail app, press Menu, press More, press Settings, you can go into Notification settings and turn off Email notifications.
That said, it sounds redundant to have your gmail account set up in both the Gmail app and the Mail app. If you do not need that, you will have noticed in the Settings that there is an option "Delete account". This will definitely stop the notifications.
(One reason you might want the Mail app to also check your gmail account - the People app will associate mail messages received in the Mail app with your contacts in the People app, but not with the Gmail app, so, if you use that feature, you'll want to keep the mail account set up, but turn the notifications off).
