MB 2.4 Ghz OSX 10.6.8 Hello all, I am trying to clean out my gmail account because it is over 95% full. I currently use Mac Mail to read my email via the IMAP protocol. When I delete an email on Mac Mail it deletes it off the gmail server so what I did was create a local folder "On my Mac" called "gmail backup" I then highlighted all of my emails from before 2009 and dragged them over to the local folder. I thought I could then just go back up and delete all of them but now they're not showing up at all in my mac mail inbox but they're definitely not deleted off the server. I wanted to avoid doing this with POP because I don't want to move all of my mail local - i just wanted to move anything over 2 years old or so. What am I doing wrong?
