Ok so yesterday i hav a .mac account opend and all seems to be working fine. With my gmail i just don't freaken understand it. When i have it set to pop, it seemed to work fine. I would have 4 boxes in mail and in my iphone (inbox, sent, draft, trash)... So if i got a new email it would be in the inbox... DUHHH, if i would delete it, it would be in the trash..DUHHHH... and if i delete it from there it would be Gone...DUHHH, unless of course i delete it form the server (www.gmail.com) Now i wanted to take advantage of the IMAP option so i did that on my iphone and Mail app. THe good thing is, if i send something from my iphone, i will see it in "send" on my home computer. BUT Ok so now with IMAP i have inbox, sent, draft, trash, gmail, all mail, sent, starred, trash, draft, spam, apple to do. So when i get a new email i get it in inbox, then i delete it and it goes to my trash, then i delete it from there and it's under my "all mail". Then i delete it from there, and it's back in my trash, then i do the same deletion, and after deleting the SAME email 8 times i think it's finally delted.. NO it's in my server trash, ok so i check all and delete. They delete, i go back to inbox and back to trash now they are ALL BACK THERE!!! So i say f@# it, i go to www.gmail.com and see it in my trash, so i check all and click "delete forever",. and then they are still there.. WTF@#?!!?!!!! Can someone please help, because i'm really close to getting additional .mac emails because with .mac, i have my inbox, sent, draft, trash... THAT'S IT! Since i have 2 emails in gmail my .mac is similar to the one i use for bills, and proffessional stuff, my other email that i use for my friends i want to get a .mac with the same name only @mac of course and forget about gmail. Please help understant gmail imap or if it just messes up period. And how can i go about getting an additional .mac account (not allies) or will allies be more of my thing?.. i need seperate emails. one for work, one for friends, different email address.
