A better Gmail IMAP to Mail.app sync
Authored by: parraccourci on Apr 17, '08 09:03:36AM

You can also support spam by doing this:

in gmail:

add a new label:
IMAP/Junck

add a new filter:
- Has the words: "is:spam" (w/o quotes)
- Next Step >>
- Apply the Labal "IMAP/Junck"


Within Mail.app's Accounts Preferences, on the Mailbox Behaviors tab, check/set these things:
- Check "Store junk messages on the server."


Highlight IMAP/Junck in the sidebar and select Mailbox » Use This Mailbox For » Spam.

A better Gmail IMAP to Mail.app sync
Authored by: ikioi on Apr 17, '08 09:56:42AM

I tried this, but Gmail doesn't actually show any of those messages in the IMAP/Junk folder. If I go to the gmail web interface and look at the Junk folder, I see all of the emails and see that they all have the IMAP/Junk label, but if I go to the IMAP/Junk label itself, it shows up empty. Any ideas for how to get around this? FWIW, I'm using Google Apps with my own domain, so if it works in regular Gmail, then this may just be a difference in behavior between regular gmail and the Google Apps version of Gmail.

I would also like to know how to get Junk/Spam syncing to work. Your method doesn't (at least, not for me).

I need this because Gmail spam filter is awesome, but not 100%, and will sometimes gobble up important e-mail. I need to check it fairly frequently, and it's a pain to have to use the web interface (especially since I have 3 Gmail addresses that receive important e-mail).

It's NOT "is:spam". It could be "in:spam".

I hope this function.
