In Mail.app (Leopard) I've got 1409 messages in my "All Mail" folder which comes from Gmail IMAP. Now whenever i try to archive this mailbox i get a useless tiny 6MB file (instead of 355MB). Does anyone know why these happens? (All email is copied for viewing offline according to the advanced settings) So i thought i could work around this by creating a folder "on my mac" and tried to copy all the email across onto my mac locally. However when i do this i just get a spinning circle next to the local folder "New Folder" and there is no hard drive activity at all. When i press the red button in the top left and then click on the mail icon in the dock again, the spinning circle is gone, with absolutely NO mail in the new folder. Does ANYONE know how to fix this? Now i cannot backup my email, and feel as though i could lose my email at any moment... Thanks.
