Applications :: Apple Mail Work With Gmail IMAP Account 8 Gig And 80 Folders?

Jul 1, 2010

Any Users of Apple Mail with HUGE Gmail IMAP accounts? I'm switching to Apple Mail and am wondering if it will work with a Gmail IMAP account of 8 GIG and 80 folders? Is this even worth trying to setup or will it just crash? 1. Will it freak out during sync and give me the "too many simultaneous connections" error? 2. Is it fast enough with such a huge IMAP folder or does it crawl?

OS X :: Configuring With Gmail IMAP Account?

Oct 21, 2010

I just configured my Gmail IMAP account in In the Settings > Labels section of Gmail, I unselected the "All Mail" label. In, I chose the Gmail > Trash mailbox and then "Use this mailbox for Trash" from the Mailbox menu, and did the same for Spam and Drafts.

Now there are no mailboxes listed in the Gmail mailbox, but it still appears there at the top of the mailbox list with a little triangle next to it. When I click on the triangle to expand, there's nothing in there - but the mailbox won't go away. It's an off-white color whereas all the other mailboxes are the standard bluish color.

Applications :: Missing Attachment In Email - Gmail IMAP Account

Mar 10, 2008

I'm using Mail with a gmail IMAP account. Recently a friend sent me an email with an Excel workbook attached, but the attachment didn't show up in Mail (no attachment in the message, no paperclip icon indicating an attachment in the Inbox). The really strange part is that if I go into my gmail account using a browser, the attachment is there. I received several other similar attachments from other people, and all those attachments showed up in Mail.

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.

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 :: 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.

Software :: Step By Step Guide Required For Converting POP Gmail Account To IMAP, With Mail?

Jul 16, 2008

I've been using Apple Mail with POP Gmail for a few years now with problems. Generally I ignore the Gmail side of things and only ever access through Mail at home, and also use a Blackberry to send and receive emails.

At the moment Gmail pushes mail to my Blackberry and also holds it in the Inbox at Gmail until my Apple Mail app on my iMac downloads it, whereupon it's all moved to All at Gmail. This works fine, but is a problem when I use Mail on my Powerbook - once it downloads the new mail, Gmail moves it to All mail and when I get home and fire up my iMac's Mail, those emails won't appear there. Annoying. So, I need to go IMAP.

My problem is that as I have never bothered with tagging or sorting things on the Gmail side of things, and have done all my ordering through Apple Mail with custom folders and rules, I get the impression all that work goes out the window and I have to start over in terms of organising again, and that in fact any rules I want to set that I want to be duplicated across devices have to be done on the Gmail webpage. Is there any way whatsoever of somehow exporting my Apple Mail rules over to Gmail so that when I change to IMAP it somehow keeps things as they are as best as possible?

Applications :: Gmail - Apple Mail - IMAP - Can't See Messages

Feb 1, 2010

I have my Apple Mail configured for use with my Gmail IMAP account but I have a problem. From the Apple Mail app, I can not see messages that were sent while in the web version of Gmail. To me, if I have it configured via IMAP, anything I do on my phone, I should see on my mac. Anything I do on my mac, I should see anywhere from the web app. Am I doing something wrong? Can YOU see messages you sent through the web portal, on your Apple Mail app?

Applications :: Mail Client Won't Do IMAP For Gmail Or MobileMe

Apr 22, 2010

I'm a lurker around here who's normally able to find the answers I need on the forum, but this one keeps stumping me and whatever search terms I'm using hasn't helped.

So I moved my email account from a GoDaddy hosted account to a Google Apps email account. After doing so, I added the mail account to my iPad and my iPhone, but when I tried to add it to my Mail Client, it kept telling me it couldn't connect to, despite my ability to ping it.

I tried to setup my mobileme account to see if it was isolated, but mobileme, is having the exact same problem.

Applications :: Apple Mail Taking TON Of Room With Gmail - IMAP

Nov 14, 2007

So I've finally gone ahead and configured my Apple Mail (on Leopard) with Gmail's IMAP. First, I must say I wasn't very impressed at Apple Mail's interface. It's minimalistic (which is a good thing) but lacks the aesthetic appeal, and the ability to easily browse through and view messages. At work I use Microsoft's Entourage, and I've gotta say, it's a lot easier to use (from a user-interface standpoint). Maybe it's because my messages appear in a column to the left and are twice as high, whereas Apple Mail's are only as high as one line of text. In any case, I've set my Apple Mail according to the directions (and tips) outlined here: Then, yesterday I began to notice that messages in my inbox (which I've read) still showed up as unread in my Trash (which is in-effect the "All Mail" folder). So I've gone ahead and checked my user/library/mail folder, and it clocks in at 4.8GB! Strangely, when I log-in to Gmail (on the web), it only shows me as using 1.7GB of the 5GB quota. Is Apple Mail keeping duplicate copies of my messages in its Inbox / Sent / Trash folders? This would certainly be the case. Can anyone offer some explanation please?

Applications :: Correctly Configure Apple Mail (Leopard) With Gmail IMAP?

Jan 18, 2008

Can anyone tell me how to correctly configure Apple Mail (Leopard) with Gmail IMAP so that you don�t have to keep a duplicate of all emails from the �All Mail� folder on my local drive? Basically, when Mail syncs, it downloads all messages, then it downloads them again because they reside in the �All Mail� folder in Gmail�s web interface. Any suggestions would be appreciated as this takes up twice the amount of space that it should.

Applications :: Snow Leopard Break Apple Mail With GMail IMAP?

Sep 10, 2009

Ever since upgrading to Snow Leopard and using Apple Mail, I have been getting the following error after a day or so of use: "Account exceeded bandwidth limits." Eventually I am able to access GMail via IMAP with Apple Mail, but only for about a day before this error occurs again. This doesn't affect my access to GMail via the web interface. Nothing has changed with my use of GMail since before the Snow Leopard upgrade and I've seen scattered reports of this on the 'net, but nothing that nails down a solid connection between the Snow Leopard upgrade and this error.

Applications :: Mail IMAP Account Not Store SENT Messages On Server?

Dec 17, 2007

I have just discovered that my IMAP email account is not saving any of my outgoing SENT emails on the server ! I have checked the settings and the option to store on the server is ticked.

I spoke to my ISP guy just now and he confirmed that there is nothing in the sent folder despite the fact that I sent three important emails today.
He suggested I 'untick' the option and save sent emails on my local iMac - and I did - and it works.....

But what is the point of an IMAP account ?? I need to work at two locations and synch the accounts ...

I found mention of this elsewhere on Google... but cannot see any fix.

(I have all updates downloaded and installed on the iMac as of this afternoon)

Applications :: Apple Mail Import - Sync With IMAP Account

Feb 11, 2010

I have the newest version of Apple Mail and I am syncing it with an IMAP account. Everything works fine so far. I had to delete all my mails on the provider server because I reached the storage limit. So I saved all my mails on my mac from the apple mail first and then I deleted all my mails on the server. After deleting all mails on the server, I putted back my old mails into APPLE MAIL, but it immediately deleted all my mails in APPLE MAIL after syncing with the server. So my question. How can I place my old mails back into APPLE MAIL without it deleting my local mails when it is syncing with the server?

Mar 6, 2010

When I send 1 email to 1 recipient from my gmail account on mac mail, the mail activity monitor on the bottom left indicates that I am sending 2, 3 or as many as 5 emails. It takes a long time to send when this happens. It only happens when I send from the gmail account and never from my other accounts. I have no "extra" mail in my sent folder. Is someone else sending email from my computer?
