    I just set up IMAP gmail on Mac mail 3.2 Leopard.

    On my inbox i check mail read it, its done. The Gmail "All mail" thinks its still unread and lists new mail.. should i check my preferences?

    Because the "All Mail" is like an archive of every e-mail message in your Gmail account while the Inbox in Mail is just a copy of new messages.

    Do a quick google search for this:

    +"Apple Mail" +Gmail +IMAP
    And it should return some results on configuring Gmail's IMAP for a more seamless experience.

    So i actually have to go into the "All mail" and click on each ?

    another thing-

    gmail saves drafts every like 10 seconds and i get 10 emails for every 1 in my trash folder, how do i do something about this?

    sometimes i save drafts so i dont want to uncheck that, but i dont want gmail to save the email i'm working on every 10 seconds and get 100 copyies .....

    I'd be interested in this too. Mail doesn't seem to handle Gmail IMAP too well. Surprising, considering the version on my Touch is flawless.
