Bought an iMac yesterday, first mac ever. I'll dual boot with Ubuntu one day, but for now I want to try OSX. I have some questions on the Mail program: 1. I configured Mail with my Gmail account. I wanted to test it by sending an e-mail to myself. I heard the "sent" sound, but it never reached my inbox in Mail. However, other e-mails seem to arrive just fine. Is there a rule that says Mail doesn't show the e-mails you've sent to yourself. 2. Afterwards, I imported my 750MB mbox file. I copied the e-mails from the 'imported' folder to the Inbox. Then, because of the problems described above under 1, I deleted the 'Gmail' account settings. Apparently, this also deleted the thousands of e-mails I had imported! How stupid is that? Why should there be a link between the settings and the e-mails you have received? Thanks for any help!
