Getting notified about new emails in my Gmail labels

I'm a heavy Gmail user and I have a bunch of filters set up so all my emails get automatically sorted into the corresponding labels. When an email comes in, the filter finds out where it's supposed to go based on some keywords and then it labels it and removes it from the Inbox.

As you can see, that last step is where I'm having a problem. Since all of my new emails skip the inbox and go straight into labels, my phone doesn't notify me about them. Anything I can do about this without having to modify every single one of my filters?

Thanks in advance,
-Karasuhebi

P.S. I sometimes text in Spanish, is there any way to turn on predictive text in some sort of dual language mode? I could do that in my Samsung Upstage and it worked really well.

I believe the market has language plugins you can install - check it out.

So what have you done to work around it? Do you just have to remember to go into the Gmail app and check your labels?

I don't have a Hero but do get Gmail pushed to my Touch Pro. I have filters set as well, I've noticed that the notifications on my push email only come from those items that arrive on my inbox.

So my solution is to go to gmail settings, edit the filter so that the messages get labeled but DO NOT skip the inbox, they get their respective label but still show up on the inbox, then I manually archive them when needed.

I'm guessing this would work on the Hero as well, but perhaps it might be inconvenient to you so give it a try and see if you like it.

I know that would work, but that's the thing I mentioned on the first post, I don't want to have to go through the trouble of changing all of my filters. I have A LOT of filters and changing them just for the Hero's sake seems kind of stupid if there could possibly be another solution.
