    I need your help to solve a problem that I've identified recently in Apple Mail with a GMail account:

    I have a POP-enabled GMail account in Mail, but also with IMAP functionality enabled through GMail's webmail settings (probably because I access it also from my iPad).

    However, I notice that my local "Sent" mailbox in Mail only contains some 140 messages, even if a visit to GMail's webmail page shows me that I have at least 1200 "sent" messages.

    I must note that my advanced mailbox settings in Mail do NOT allow for automatic deletion of sent items.

    So my question is: how to make sure that I do not lose ANY sent items from GMail or any other account for that matter (i.e., that whatever is sent remains in the local "sent" mailbox in Mail)? Am I missing something?

    Thanks a lot in advance for your help.
