    Hi Guys,
    When using the 'Mail' app on OSX, i've noticed that the inbox seems to sync with Gmail (if I compose and send a message on it shows up in mail). However the sent items box doesn't seem to sync so well and I'm missing a couple of emails. I'm using Imap and tried 'Get Mail' numerous times to no avail.
    Can anyone shed some light?

    Take a look at the preference Store sent messages on the server:

    Hi Caleb,
    thanks for the reply, I've left that un-ticked as advised by Google on the settings page...

    I have my gmail set up in Mac Mail, with that option clicked, and have had no problems.

    sent gmail not syncing

    I've begun to notice that gmail's sent mail is not synching, even though in my preferences in Mac Mail, I've checked the box to leave sent mail on the server.

    Any way of curing this?
