    Hi. Not a noob by any means but, I am stuck and need help.

    First, I copied my gmail pop folder to my desktop in case of a problem, so I do have everything backed up.

    Next, I deleted the gmail POP account in Mail, set up the IMAP account but none of my emails showed up in the inbox (only new messages). The new gmail mailbox for the imap setup (at the bottom of the email accounts pane) has no inbox. It has a few folders such as All Mail, Sent, etc.

    Long story short, only some of my emails show up in the "All Mail" folder.

    Is there a way to take the messages from my backup folder inbox and get them back to the gmail inbox or better yet to the gmail server? I did copy some into the live inbox, but they don't appear in the mail client. Thanks very much for any help or suggestions. Hope this pic helps....

    I have a similar problem. Emails only show up in my Inbox if I have it highlighted and am viewing it. If I go select another folder like "All Mail" and then go back to Inbox folder, no mail is displayed. It shows that I have new email but it won't display anything.
