Applications :: Access Gmail Online Or Via Mail?

Oct 13, 2009

Gmail Users: Do you access your gmail only online, or do you use Apple Mail? I've been using Apple mail for my Gmail for a few years now (IMAP). However, I didn't realize how messed up it left my Gmail online (Tabs are a mess, mail messages are getting lost). I'm considering going back to online Gmail, but I also liked how Apple mail played nice with the iphone (since there's no Google GMAIL app for the iphone). So, let me know how you access your Gmail!

OS X Mavericks :: Mail Won't Take Gmail Online

Jun 25, 2014

Apple mail shows GMail off line. I get the following message when I select "take all accounts on line 

"Unable to connect"

There may be a problem with the mail server or network. Verify the settings for account “Gmail” or try again. 

The server returned the error: The connection to the server “” on port 465 timed out." 

When I select take all accounts on line I get this message


There may be a problem with the mail server or network. Verify the settings for account “Gmail” or try again.

The server returned the error: The connection to the server “” on port 465 timed out. 

I have had a long call with my service provider who checked all settings but to no avail. 

Same issue with iPad mini and IPhone

OS X :: Store Gmail Locally In Apple Mail - Delete Online

Oct 26, 2010

I recently lost one of my Gmail accounts to a hacker and it was an enlightening experience. I like to keep all of my gmail messages because it's a useful history to search if I ever need to look up an old thread. However, the obvious problem is a hacker who gets in also has all that knowledge. What I'd like to be able to do is store my full Gmail account with all messages locally in Apple mail where I can backup as often as I want, then I'd like to purge my online Gmail messages. The idea is if someone hacked my Gmail account, they'd see very little messages but I would still have all e-mail copies saved on my machine.

OS X Mavericks :: How To Create Email Profile On Mail To Access Gmail

Sep 1, 2014

I know how to create a email profile on OSX Mail to access GMail. My question is if the GMail mail will be downloaded locally to my machine or will it remain on the Google servers. I WANT it to remain on the servers, ie I only want to access my emails through Mail. Otherwise most of my HDD will fill up with email and also I will not be able to access my emails when I do not have my machine on hand. what happens when I delete an email in Mail? Will it also get deleted in GMail?

MacBook Pro with Retina display, OS X Mavericks (10.9.1)

Applications :: Gmail On All Mail In Folders Has Been Duplicated To Inbox?

May 22, 2009

I use gmail as my main email account. I have it synched to my iphone (IMAP) and (IMAP). This was all running smoothly until about a week ago when I turned on my mac and opened mail. It started downloading hundreds of emails.

I looked over them and it seems that all the mails that I have moved to sub folders have been copied to my inbox again and marked as unread.

I have not knowingly changed any settings on my iphone, mac or web based gmail.

Applications :: How To Export Mail From Apple Mail Program To Gmail

Aug 13, 2010

I have decided to start using gmail and keeping my email online instead of stored locally in the Mail program.

I have all my old mail and sent mail downloaded locally in the Mail program.

Is there an easy way to export all of that into gmail? I see I can import mail into gmail from other mail accounts, but here I am talking about importing mail that is now stored locally.

Applications :: Mail From Gmail / Spam In Sent Mail?

Feb 28, 2010

Don't know if this was addressed yet, but "Spam" mail from my gmail (spam folder - duh!) keeps popping up in my "Sent Mail" folder in Mac mail. I found this post online, but am not tech savvy enough to know what they're talking about.


Okay. I know what's going on there. You are correct this is spam that does not originate from you. The issue is that it is not your gmail address that is being forged, but your other address that forwards to gmail. You have also configured your forwarding server as a valid mail originator for your address in SPF. So the mail looks completely legitimate to gmail: it arrives at gmail from a server that you have configured as a valid server to send from your email address, therefore gmail thinks it really is from your email address.

If you control your own domain and you use gmail's smtp server for outgoing mail, you should remove the SPF entry that marks the forwarding server (URL) as a valid originator for your domain. Then gmail will be able to figure out that this is forged. This will likely cause gmail to put this stuff properly in Spam and to avoid showing you the images.(URL)

Applications :: Mac Mail And Gmail

Sep 1, 2010

I am having problems with my mac mail and gmail. It was consistent across my iphone, imac and macbook. Only with one gmail account, the other is fine. It tells me there is a username or password error. I know this isnt the case because I have tested it by logging into the web version of gmail. I have tried deleting and recreating the account - still the same problem. On my iphone the problem was fixed by using exchange.

Applications :: Using Mail And Gmail IMAP?

Sep 29, 2010

I had a question. Is there a way to use Gmail's IMAP with Apple Mail and configure it so that when the message is deleted on Gmail, It is not deleted in Apple Mail. I have wanted to convert to IMAP for a while but was always concerned with the possibility of Gmail servers accidentally deleting all of my emails and then would in turn delete all of them on my computer and I would have no backup copies of my emails anymore. I like to archive my emails but I like the performance of receiving emails thru IMAP over POP.

Applications :: Better Client For Gmail Than

Jan 7, 2011

I've been using for my gmail accounts for quite a while now - but it seems that Mail just isn't designed for gmail. For example - when I search for a message, each message will appear two or more times (located in Inbox & All Mail, not inc. any labels), archiving messages isn't exactly easy, and deleting messages doesn't quite.. delete messages.

Is there a way to make more friendlier towards Gmail accounts or is there a better client for Mac for Gmail accounts?

Applications :: Gmail Accessing Through Mail App

Apr 15, 2009

Is there anybody that has experience with gmail but accessing it through your mail app. I've read everywhere on google that imap has to be enabled and you have to set up the account correctly on my MBP. I've done all that and half the time I try to delete some e-mails they will look like they get deleted but in about 2-3 mins they come back up on my computer as it downloaded it again.. It never deleted it from gmail... I would rather use imap because it's easier to use with my iphone... Plus I want to have access like I have on my phone but on my computer.. What settings do I need and how did you guys get it to work?

I am not an Exchange guru, but it would seem logical that you could use the same server settings for I'm not sure how to manually add an exchange server instead of using the auto-discover though.

Applications :: Using Gmail IMAP For Mac Mail?

Oct 3, 2009

I was wondering if there is a way to configure Gmail IMAP for Mac Mail in such a way that I only get the new message (don't download whatever I have already), and when I press archive, it deletes them from my computer but saves them in Gmail?

Basically, my Gmail account is already around 6GB and I don't really want to have all of that on my hard drive

Applications :: Transferring From Gmail To Mail?

Oct 6, 2009

k... so I have been an avid Gmail user and fan since in was released. I have only been a Mac user for a little over a year now, and love it! I have only just recently tried to make the switch to using 'Mail'. Until now I've just used Gmail, but I wanted to try Mail because it syncs seamlessly with everything, auto-suggests calendar entries and to-dos etc. However, my questions are these: How much HD space do the emails take up? Are the still stored on Google's server (through Gmail), or do they take up my HD space?

Applications :: Broke With Gmail

Oct 17, 2009

I've been using for my gmail account through IMAP since I upgraded to Snow Leopard just over a month ago, and its been working fine. I've found it to be pretty well integrated in general.But today it stopped working completely. Mail opens, but it's not picking up on any new messages I'm receiving in Gmail, and it won't send anything out.

I think this might have happened when I mistakenly tried to send a 125MB attachment. I tried to send that, it didn't go through (way too big obviously), and since then I haven't been able to send or receive anything. I've logged out, rebooted, taken my accounts offline and back online.

Applications :: Mail 4.2 And Gmail Settings

Jan 4, 2010

before I get started I want to say that I read all of the threads pertaining to this issue and I cannot come to a conclusion as to what I can do to resolve this issue. I bought my wife a 15" Macbook Pro for the holidays and she's a recent convert to Mac OS. As I was tutoring her on the basics, we proceeded on setting up her email account through Gmail with the Mail app. What I also did was delete my own account on my iMac so I can set it up together with her while she watched me do it and sure enough, when it was all said and done, our mail accounts were set up but now I had new folders that I've never seen before. Mail no longer gave me the option to choose POP and set up IMAP by default instead. This led me to finding out that if I held down the Alt/Option key during the account setup, it then gave me the option to use a POP setting. Everyone says that IMAP is a much better solution and I ultimately want to move away from POP but Mail keeps downloading ALL of my emails that dates back at least a month. Sometimes this takes a least 7 to 8 minutes as I have some large attachments from previous recipients and it bogs down my network. Keep in mind that it doesn't matter if I delete all of them, they still re-download when I relaunch the Mail app. How in the hell do I sort all of this out? I've gone into my Gmail settings and checked off the proper protocols for POP settings when I use POP and then proper IMAP settings for that as well. It's just so confusing for me to have all of those Gmail folders on the left hand side. I just want to be able to delete an email forever without Mail acting up. Is this a server issue with Gmail or a problem with Mail itself? I do not want to use Thunderbird because Mail is perfectly integrated enough with the OS for me.

Applications :: Mail - Use It Over Gmail's Web Interface?

Jan 24, 2010

This is by no means a "new" topic, as both the Gmail interface and have been around forever, each increasing in simplicity of use and features since their inception. I have a blackberry, but also use the gmail web interface. I've been noticing many productivity freaks stating that they use, and I don't understand why? The way gmail handles conversations is much neater and tidier, and the instant search is fantastic. The only thing I can see is the use of folders, which Gmail can nearly do with tags. So what am I missing? Can increase my productivity and efficiency? Or would I just be downloading extra junk to my hard drive to be viewed and managed in a less efficient way?

Applications :: How To Sent Items In GMail And Mail/IMAP

Jul 2, 2008

but I end up with sent items in my label/folders at least when I reply. So, for example, if I label an email "important" it ends up in an "important" folder. But if I reply, then the sent item also shows up in that folder within Mail. I know that this results from Gmail's use of labels rather than folders. It's not a problem in the Gmail/webmail interface because of the threaded display. But what I'd like to do is set a filter within gmail that basically strips any sent mail of all other labels so that when working within Mail I don't get the sent items showing up in the inbox or labels/folders.
