Delete Gmail messages in OSX Mail but they all come back

I delete Gmail messages in OSX Mail but they all come back from the Gmail servers. I know IMAP doesn't mirror but POP does. So if it's a POP account when you delete a msg in OSX Mail it gets deleted from GMail too right?

But when you set Gmail up in OSX mail or iOS Mail it's always IMAP settings.

How can I delete 1000's of Gmail msgs in OSX Mail and have them deleted on the Gmail servers too so that all those messages don't come back again?

Thanks

You have it backwards. IMAP syncs all clients with the server. POP doesn't.

Check your settings, referencing the link I posted. Make sure you're not leaving deleted items on the server.
