    I want to start using Mail as my email client instead of going to gmail all the time to check for mail.

    So far, I setup the google account using "account..." in preferences

    I've been messing around with the settings, even took a look at suggested gmail settings. Some of them helped.

    Probably the biggest concern of my problems is that my deleted messages are not going into the trash.

    I would like Mail 5 to work as if I'm in gmail. Sent mail goes to sent mail, deleted messages goes to gmail trash, etc...

    Any suggestions?

    I no longer use gmail, but in the previous version of mail, I had to select the gmail trash folder (under the GMAIL section in the sidebar) and use the "mailbox" menu to "use this mailbox for trash". I assume this should work in the new Mail.

    WOW! Just like that. Thank-you very much! I was sooo pissed that it can't do that.

    Thanks again!
