Applications :: Deleting From Mail Does Not Delete Message From Gmail

May 10, 2009

When I open my mail app and delete a message, it deletes it from my mail app inbox. When I log on to gmail, I see the mail still there. Is there anyway to delete from mail, and have it remove the message from gmail altogether?

Applications :: Store Gmail Emails On Server With Mail.app?

Mar 6, 2010

I am trying to use Mac mail.app for my Gmail account, a paid account holding about 10GB of mail. I have no trouble setting up the account in mail.app, but I gather IMAP set ups store all the Inbox locally? Certainly set up of the gmail account in mail consumes over 10G of my precious MBP HD space.

So, is it possible to set up Mac mail with webmail so it that it more or less acts as a UI for the webmail account? I know I could easily use an app like Mailplane (nice but constantly crashes for me) or just a browser, but I am frustrated by the fact that OSX defaults to mail when an email link is clicked (maybe there is a fix for this) and I do like drag and drop file attaching, as well as the integration with iPhone, mobileme etc.

OS X Mavericks :: Mail App Won't Empty Trash On Gmail Server

Jun 30, 2014

I'm having a new problem with Mail in Mavericks that seems to have just started around a month ago.  When I have emails in the trash in Mail and choose Erase Deleted Items to empty the trash it seems to fully delete them all within the Mail app.  But as I just discovered yesterday by going to the gmail website (for the first time in awhile) they are apparently not being deleted from the server.  The emails are properly being moved into trash within gmail but when emptying trash in Mail they do not empty within gmail. 

As I said, this is a recent problem that never happened with Mavericks Mail for me before a month ago.  I just updated to 10.9.4 today and its still happening.

OS X Mavericks :: Mac Mail Will Only Send From One Google Gmail Server

Jun 6, 2014

macmail mail will only load one outgoing GMAIL mail server. So I can load as many accounts as I want, receive mail in mac mail, but when i send mail it only comes from one of the outgoing gmail mail servers. The rest of the gmail mail servers show as being "offline."

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Cannot Log Into Mail After Accidentally Deleting Account

Mar 20, 2012

I was logged into my Workgroup Manager remotely and lag caused me to accidentally delete the wrong account, which is used primarily for email. When I re-created the account, I found I could no longer log into the email account regardless of repeatedly re-entering the proper password into Workgroup Manager thinking that I had somehow typed it in wrong. From Apple Mail, it tells me the credentials are wrong. But from the Mail Server's logs, I see these entries in the log substituting <xxxx> for the actual user account name:

Cache lookup for user <xxxx>

mail SACL is not enabled; error = 2

found user <xxxx> in cache as <xxxx>

Credential verification failed because account is inactive.

I don't see any settings that indicate an active or inactive account. Anyone know what could be causing this error and how to fix it? It sounds like it's treating the new account with the same name as a completely different account but is still trying to access the deleted account, but I'm not sure if I'm right. If the old account is still in the cache, how do I clear that cache so that the newly created account is unique?

OS X Mavericks :: Delete Emails On Mail App But Remain On Gmail Server

Jun 23, 2014

I have 128 GB HDD and many emails syncing by Gmail IMAP. Thousands of emails are stored on my HDD and most of them I will never use in the future. Despite this I'd like to keep them in gmail server, just for case... 

I was trying to reduce size of my Mail.app for very long time and nothing works correctly.  

Ideal situation would be something like this:

E-mails older than 2 months will automatically delete from Mail.app but not from server. Or it doesn't have to be automatic, but I have to keep them on gmail.com. I'm not sure if it is possible with IMAP.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Mail On IMac Doesn't Download Emails From The Gmail Server

Apr 14, 2012

Since yesterday the mail programme on my iMac does not download e-mails from the gmail server, but luckily I still can send e-mails. On the iPhone I still receive e-mails and I can send e-mails. The iPhone is connected to the internet either via 3G or the same router I am using for the iMac.

Via the Safari browser I do have access to all my e-mails on the gmail server. Mail: Version 4.5 (1084)

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Remove Mail From Gmail When Archiving Locally On Apple Mail?

Jun 21, 2012

I have been using Gmail for about 7 months, now. I am using it in conjunction with a MacBook Pro (15 inch, mid-2010, i5, 2.53 GHz, running OS 10.7.4 and the current version of Mail) and an iPhone 4S (iOS 5.1.1 with the pre-installed Mail app). I, rarely, use Gmail's web interface and prefer to view and manage my mail using my devices.

I, recently, discovered a Gmail behavior that I wasn't aware of. Whenever I deleted an email from my Inbox on my MacBook, it wouldn't, actually, delete from Gmail. Instead, a copy of the mail would remain in Gmail's "All Mail" folder. It seems that Gmail and I have different ideas about deleting. When I delete, it means that I would, actually, like to get rid of it, not hide it somewhere else. After sorting through the, almost, 3000 emails in the "All Mail" folder and re-deleting everything that I thought I had already deleted (a pain, to be sure), I found the solution to my problem.In Apple Mail, I checked both Trash options in my account preferences then selected Gmail's "Trash" folder and used the "Use This Mailbox For" option to map it to Mail's trash (similarly, I mapped the trash folder on my iPhone to Gmail's trash folder). Now, everything I delete is going to the same place (and actually getting deleted).

Info:MacBook Pro (15-inch Mid 2010), Mac OS X (10.7.4)

Applications :: Gmail On Mail.app. 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 mail.app (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)

Software :: Apple Mail Not Deleting Mail

Oct 13, 2010

I have two emails--one from June 2010 and one from yesterday that for some unknown reason my mail program will not delete. Both are marked as "junk," but I cannot move or delete them. One is in my main address, the other in the junk folder.

When I try to delete them the color of the typeface changes from the light brown (designated as the junk mail color) to gray/black of the normal mail, but they will not move to the trash. I have tried repeatedly to get them out of their boxes, but am completely stumped. Can you help?

OS X Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Mail And Secondary Mail Server?

Jun 16, 2012

As I am working on my mail server I would like to ensure that I have some form of back system to prevent me from looosing e-mail messages in the future, specially those that are business related. Once in a while we experience a power outage and I would hate to loose an important business e-mail sent to us at a time when the mail server is down. 

1. Is there a way to have/use a remote secondary mail server so that in case an e-mail is sent but can't be delivery to our mail server, it is then re-routed to this secondary mail server so that it isn't lost. In this case how should this be set-up both on the server in OS X 1.6.8 and on the outside? 

2. I plan to set up an account with Google or another e-mai service provider but would like my e-mail to use my own domain name instead. How simple would this be to set UP? Will Google allow the creation of e-mail accounts with the use of domain names other than its own?

Applications :: Apple Mail's Equivalent To Gmail's "send Mail As"

Oct 2, 2008

I use Apple Mail as a client for my Gmail account instead of Gmail's web interface. There is one thing the web interface provides that I'm not sure how to set up within Apple Mail. In the web interface under Settings --> Accounts, the first section is called "Send mail as:" and allows you to send mail from the interface that uses another email address in the From header. I have it set so that when I receive a message that was sent to one of these other addresses (they all forward to my Gmail address), replies will automatically be sent with that address as the From header. How do I set up this functionality within Apple Mail without creating a separate account/inbox for the other accounts? I am not checking mail directly from the others, just want to be able to send as them.

OS X Yosemite :: Mail Couldn't Discover Account Settings For Mail Server

Dec 1, 2014

I've added a Google Apps account to OS X Yosemite 10.10.1 few weeks ago to use it in Mail, but I removed it last week. I tried adding it back during the weekend, but I've been getting this error: "Mail couldn't discover the account settings for the Mail server domain" 

This comes after I click "Set Up" and tick Mail only. I don't have 2 step verification enabled for that account and I didn't change any account settings since adding it last time. 

Also, I can still see the account (as well as other Google account that's currently not added to OS X) in Accounts.plist located in: ~/Library/Mail/V2/MailData
