    Is there a way so that when i have my Gmail via IMAP so that when i click all mail, it will not download all the mail i have? Also, is there a way to remove the downloaded mail from my mac?

    Mine does this too - I believe it's a limitation of GMail's IMAP implementation. I haven't found any setting, either on GMail or, to change this behavior.

    You can turn that option off in the accounts>>advanced tab

    If you turn saving off, will only download the headers

    I guess what i'm asking is if you can have it download the first 25 messages like the iPhone does, then more if you have to.

    No, unfortunately that's not possible with OS X desktop mail program.
