I use the new Gmail app on my Galaxy s2.

One notification for each new message s very annoying.

I want the new mail notification to act like on my desktop - a notification on the toolbar that indicates that there is an unread mail.

Can you thing on a way to do that?

Within Gmail while at the inbox screen if you click Menu and then Label Settings you should then be able to check notify once and then you should get notified for every new messages as a group.

Isn't this backwards? You should check notify once if you want only one notification for all new messages. The OP is asking for a universal notification, not a notification for each message individually. – Stephen Schrauger Dec 17 '12 at 22:38
This is the reverse of what the original poster was asking for. – Harsha K Dec 18 '12 at 3:35
