I just set up gmail with and everything looks good except I am not sure which mailbox to use to see the full effect of IMAP (delete/view a message in and it will update accordingly on gmail). I have a picture attached with my mailboxes.

The two boxes in question are Inbox and [Gmail] which I assume represents my gmail inbox.

So if I read a message in my "Inbox" in, does it show as read in gmail, or do I have to use the greyed [Gmail] to see results?

If it is ok to use "Inbox" and still see IMAP effects, may I delete [Gmail] and still be ok w/ IMAP?

Thanks in Advance.

QUOTE Thanks
