I got my new Mac Mini yesterday (2.3 Ghz Intel Core i5, Mac OS X 10.7.3), and I've decided to give the Mail app (version 5.2) a chance, as I have several gmail accounts which I need to constantly be checking.
When I added each new account, it automatically started downloading emails, immediately it said it had 692 to download, and I just kept adding the other accounts, it said it had to download 8874 messages a few minutes later, so I let it work while I went to sleep.
This morning I checked and it was no longer downloading any emails, but my MAILBOXES only had a relatively small amount of messages :S
· Inbox (between all the accounts it only has 696 messages total)
· Sent is empty!
· Junk is empty
Because the Sent carpet was empty I wasted some time researching online to see how I could download the Sent messages, finding recommendations that I would have to enable "POP for all mail" on my gmail account settings (Gmail Mail settings ->Click Forwarding and POP/IMAP ->Enable POP for all mail (even mail that's already been downloaded). I tried this but every time I saved the change and went back to look, it was back to being un-selected.
Searching in this forum I read this thread: http://www.mac-forums.com/forums/os-...-question.html, and although the poster is not asking about downloading the sent messages, I was thrown back by the comment:
I thought about not writing this thread at all since my problem is solved, but I think its best to leave it, in case other new Mail 5.2 users think they need to do something "additional" to download the mails from your gmail account! The correct procedure is: let your Mac do it automatically! Lesson learned!
