Currently I have Apple Mail set up with several various email accounts including Gmail.
Gmail is set up as IMAP.
On gmail settings website page > LABELS
I had All Mail > show in IMAP. Just got quite annoying since it would show way too much garbage email.
So I unchecked show in IMAP.
Now my Apple mail it’s showing much less garbage email
next as a test - I chose to archive 1 gmail. It turns out that it showed a new IMAP LABEL = [Imap]/Archive
it moved it to there.
It seems this is a better set up going forward.
note: MOSTLY Just using Apple mail (not gmail website)…
Q: I’m a bit confused about folder labels like [Imap]/Archive and [Imap]/Trash. Should I just leave them as is or should I create a better name for them? How can I do this either on the gmail website or through Apple mail?
Q: I archived 1 email on gmail website and I guess it went to All Mail - and I can not see it in apple mail (cause I dumped show in IMAP). When I archived 1 mail in apple mail it went to the [Imap]/Archive label (and shows on both apple mail and website)
… hmmm any better way to manage all this?
