    Wasn't sure where to post this, so here it is.

    When accessing gMail via the standard Mail app, some mail header entries have a small blue arrow in the far left.

    Anyone know what the blue arrow means?

    PS: By the "mail header entries", I mean the entries in the left hand column that you click to view a specific email. The little blue arrow is in the far left of an entry in that column.

    I just had a look at my gmail account on my iPad, and don't see anything like that. I have a blue circle for unread, a star for VIP and nothing for read. This is a new one on me.

    An arrow on an email often means "forwarded" or "replied", so that might be it.

    OK, the little blue arrow means the email was forwarded. I can't believe that I couldn't figure that out.

    Thanks for reply.

    No problem. That explains why I've never seen it. I never forward anything. Now if you'd asked my mother-in-law... (The Spam Queen)
