    I have a 27" i7 with a SSD and a HD. I use Gmail / Imap, but I store my message on my Mac so I can easily search through them.

    However, my Gmail account is large enough that it fills my SSD. I need the mail application to store the message on the HD. I can't find an option to make that happen.

    Anyone know of a work around?

    this might work, it might not.

    Move the mail folder to another location and leave an alias to it in it's place.
