Gmail doesn't really use folders. It uses labels. That way the same email can have numerous labels while still being just one email.

you would archive it or delete it. if you archive it it goes to the "all mail" folder and just lives its life there. if you delete it it would go into the trash of course. Sparrow is cool for Gmail. it works better than Apple Mail does.

can i bang my head against the desk now or later :)

if one more person or their site says how good sparrow is for gmail.. to the moon alice LOL.. and how do i access this archive.. i cant find it.. i dont see ANYTHING that says archive..

to complicate things i am just learning all this tag / label stuff.

do i need to label (i prefer the word tag) mail to archive it

i dont see an all mail folder?

if i make a new label in gmail web does it get brought into sparrow?

No. You can archive an email by clicking the archive button in the top right toolbar (box and arrow icon). From this toolbar you can also create a New Mail, Reply, and Delete.

Click the lower left Label button and select All Mail, or any Label.

Sparrow and Gmail sync 100%.

Does sparrow allow for individual email accounts to use signatures? And does it play nice with icloud?

Have 3 aliases with my @me email does sparrow support those?
Yes. I suggest you try the free version and if you feel anything is missing, look at the paid version features and from there decide if you want/need to purchase.
