Gmail and Thunderbird: New messages because of “Important” tag

If you, like me, use Thunderbird to read your Gmail account, and your e-mail keeps indicating new e-mail has arrived, because of the Gmail “Important” tag, you can turn it off by going into the Gmail settings, by logging into Gmail, select Settings > Labels, and turn off the Show in IMAP toggle.

That should solve the problem.
