Remove Gmail's All Mail folder in Mail from Spotlight index
Authored by: poppap on Mar 08, '08 01:57:15AM
Instead of touch or ln -s to /dev/null
I copied the emptied Trash folder (Empty it in Mail.app first) as All Mail and chmod it to be read only.

first,
rm -fr "All Mail.imapmbox"
or back it up
then
cp -R Trash.imapmbox "All Mail.imapmbox"
chmod -R 500 "All Mail.imapmbox"

This prevent Mail.app from crashing when performing the search.
