Thread: Mail.app/IMAP: Delete & Expunge
11-18-2009, 06:03 AM #1Mail.app/IMAP: Delete & Expunge
Ok, few questions.
So i have my Gmail account setup in Mail.App using IMAP. I finally have a good understanding on what all the folders/labels are.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but when i delete a message from my Inbox, it just expunges it, right? Which removed it from all lables/folders, but it stays in All Mail?
Gmail's Mail.App recommendation settings are when you delete a message from your Inbox, it just goes to "On my Mac > Deleted Messages".
Does this also expunge the message?
How long does an expundged message stay in "All Mail"?
Is there a way that when i delete a message from my Inbox, it goes to [gmail]trash and also removed from all mail?
Then when i am ready i can just empty the [gmail]trash out and the messages are for ever gone.
Any help is SUPER appertained.

Another thing i'm not sure about is. What to set these Gmail settings to...
* Immediately expunge messages when I mark them deleted in IMAP
* Do not automatically expunge messages
When a message is expunged from the last visible IMAP folder:
* Archive the message
* Move the message to the Trash
* Immediately delete the message forever
