Use Gmail Labs to remove 'All Mails' folder from Mail.app

That's great but is there any way of removing the [Gmail] folder that gets left behind?

Non english US users do not have acces to the "Labs" tab.
To enable it, you can temporaly change you accout's language (in the General tab) to English US and then put it back tou your language once the Avanced Imap lab has been enabled.

To "remove" the [Gmail] folder in mail, you can put [Gmail] as IMAP prefix in the advanced tab of your e-mail's account preferences.

A friend just let me know that sometimes [Google Mail] is used instead of [Gmail].

Use the appropriate one for your IMAP prefix and with your custom labels.

Use Gmail Labs to remove 'All Mails' folder from Mail.app

I set the IMAP Prefix Path to [Gmail] and then this did remove the Gmail on the sidebar - nice work. However, my inbox stopped working? I noticed that the sent folder, spam and trash are all still fine and have their messages by there are no messages anymore in my inbox. I tried emailing my gmail account from another email address, and it only populates to All Mail.

any ideas?

Really great hint, and good suggestion by parraccourci.

However, be aware if you use [Gmail] as the IMAP prefix in Mail, any custom labels you use will need to be prefixed with [Gmail]/ on the gmail.com Settings -> Labels page, or they will not show up in Mail.

For example:
The label Work needs to be renamed [Gmail]/Work.

HTH,

Rycardo
