Following are my test results in both Mail and Gmail/web
- deleted msgs in inbox are grey but not removed - gmail prefs, checked Trash for 'show in IMAP' - now trash shows up under Gmail but is empty - mail prefs, set "Use this mailbox for Trash" - now I have two Trash folders under Gmail, but under Trash I do not see this gmail account listed (the account is correctly listed under Inbox, Drafts, Sent - In one of the Trash folders under Gmail, I deleted all the msgs. There was Activity, but msgs are still there. - In Gmail/web I invoked "Empty trash now" for all 122 msgs. - In Mail, I invoked Synchronize <this gmail account> -> deleted msgs still there - Run Mail Vacuum automator script - When Mail relaunches it does IMAP synch - now have only one Trash folder under Gmail, but deletes are still showing in Inbox grey - Undelete one msg - seemed to work - try delete again - synched with IMAP but msg is still there.
- Gmail settings: I think the problem may be related to following exactly the Gmail help "(access Gmail froth other clients using IMAP)
- Mail.app prefs, I have set according the Gmail help as follows (only store junk on server is checked):
<<< Apple Mail
From the Mail menu, click Preferences > Accounts > Mailbox Behaviors
Drafts: Store draft messages on the server > do NOT check
Sent: Store sent messages on the server > do NOT check
Junk: Store junk messages on the server > checked Delete junk messages when > Never
Trash: Move deleted messages to the Trash mailbox > do NOT check Store deleted messages on the server > do NOT check
Any suggestions would be mucho appreciated!
