I would delete the account from the Mail.app and start over. Sign into your Gmail account with your browser and go to Settings/Forwarding and POP/IMAP. Make sure that there is no forwarding. Make sure that POP is disabled. Make sure that IMAP is enabled.
Then follow these directions for configuring the Mail.app v4.4 with a Gmail account.

Currently Being ModeratedFeb 10, 2011 2:21 AM (in response to Dah•veed)How do I delete the account? The option to delete both inboxes is greyed out, although I do get the 'delete mailbox' option if I choose an individual 'saved mail' folder. If I choose 'delete mailbox', it won't delete my emails for good so I can't access them from anywhere, will it???
I can archive the mailbox. ???
When I check my Mac Mail settings, both accounts are set to IMAP (whatever that is!)
I did go to my gmail account via Safari and changed it to IMAP there. POP was enabled. I can't figure out what to do with AOL so hopefully someone else will chime in.

Highlight the account with one click and press the minus sign at the bottom of the list. Then press the plus sign and create the new account.Early '09 Mac mini - 2GB RAM, Early '06 17" iMac CD - 2 GB RAM, Mac OS X (10.6.6), Happily using Macs since 1984!
