Apple Mail seems like a great app, and I'd really love to use it with my Gmail accounts. But I've never used a mail client before, and I'm confused to say the least. And I can't say I'm convinced that Mail is superior to plain old online Gmail. So, for the questions. 1. I just set it up, but now it's importing everything I already have in Gmail. Some 3000+ messages strong. And it's calling them all new and unread. So what I've been doing is highlighting them all and right clicking and selecting "Mark Read." I created a folder- archives- and moved them all there. But it's still importing. Is there a better way to deal with this? 2. It seems like if I write a message in Mail it goes into my sent mail folder on Gmail also. Correct? If so...very nice. 3. What if I want to sync across multiple computers? 4. What's the advantage of using Mail? 5. Is transferring the messages to Mail going to cause them to be removed from Gmail? What's with this setting to remove from server after however long? 6. Is there a way to have a message in more than one folder? 7. Way to move Gmail contacts to Address Book?
