Hello,

I keep experiencing strange behaviour in Apple Mail since I switched to IMAP on my gmail.

Here’s what happens. (I configured everything correctly I think). :

A message arrives in my “inbox” on my mac, I read it, I delete it. Now I look in my trash can, I see the deleted mail there. I highlight it and press delete: it disappears and reappears right away…
So I must delete on the mac twice to really delete the mail...
But then I look at the gmail account through my webbrowser:
it surely has removed the deleted mail from the inbox in gmail. But it is still in "all mail"...what am I doing wrong??? It's driving me a bit crazy...
QUOTE Thanks
Collin Bl
