Map Gmail IMAP Folders to Mail.app Default Folders
Authored by: CaptainIndignant on Oct 24, '07 08:30:22AM
I am MADLY refreshing but still don't have Gmail IMAP...
New mail showed up in my Inbox AND in my All Mail folder. When I marked it read in my inbox, it did not mark read in All Mail. Requiring me to mark each message as read twice to keep my new message count down. Labels did the same thing. :(
You should be able to create a simple filter in Apple Mail to mark new mail in All Mail as read upon arrival. Not sure if this would mark the Inbox mail as read too. And I guess it wouldn't solve the problem on iPhone.

You definitely don't want to delete mail from the Inbox - in gmail, deleting is deleting. What if you drag it from Inbox to All Mail? Does that just leave you with one copy in All and none in Inbox? Conceptually, that would seem to fit with the way Gmail is mapping labels to virtual IMAP folders. Wish I could test it myself...
