It's up and down and I have an ignored thread over at apple discussions onmy questions. Can you help? I have two gmail accounts and one exchange account from my almma matter that I'm bringing into Mail. Don't want offline viewin so I turned that off, don't want my 3 some gigs of e-mails sitting around either. I thnk I covered that by turning it off in the advanced tab of each gmail account. GMAIL -I mark my gmail off in read and unread groups. I started Mail, setup gmail account 1 and 2 and in the time it took me to tell it not to store any messages on my computer it had downloaded a bunch of stuff already in my trash folder. -i deleted them to get rid of the numbers -i open up my gmail account in Safari and....wow now instead of 4 read messages that I'm hanging onto in my inbox for reminders, there are around 60, and half of them have the gmail label "Deleted Messages" does this mean that if I ever delete something from Mail it will just 'label' it deleted in my web gmail? -can I archive my mail through Mail like I can in the gmail web app? Or do I have to go from my inbox uptop, to my account below and dig down to all mail and drag it there? -I have 3 total accounts; 2 gmail and the exchange - but only a drafts section for 1 mail and 1 exchange. EXCHANGE I have a dozen email's sitting in my web based exchange inbox, but none of them show up in m Mail app in OS X. Only the new ones. SIDE STUFF -it seems gmail synced up my iPad notes(awesome!) but I don't know if it was gmail web or stating the Mail app) but I don't want my notes to show in my inbox; isn't that why there's a notes sidebar? thanks for any help guys!
