    Hi there,

    I was wondering if there is a way to configure Gmail IMAP for Mac Mail in such a way that I only get the new message (don't download whatever I have already), and when I press archive, it deletes them from my computer but saves them in Gmail?
    Basically, my Gmail account is already around 6GB and I don't really want to have all of that on my hard drive!

    I've got it configured it only works online. So you'll have to be connected to the internet. That way it doesn't download all the e-mails, or save anything on your pc, but you can control gmail. Look into Mail preferences.

    Alright thanks,

    One thing now. The thing works fine, but the problem is that I cannot get Emails while I am logged in! What I mean is that I need to completely quit the application and reopen it to get the new mails! Then after, if I get new emails, it still does not show up until I quit and reopen it!!
    However, I can still emails fine.
