MacMail and gMail folder sync
Posted by: Fritz
Date: June 29, 2012 08:04AM
usually I read mail in MacMail. But on the road I will usually use gMails webmail.
At home I will Move messages to various work and home related folders in the MacMail Archive.
Is there a way to get these folders to sync in gMail webmail?
Backwards compatibility would be needed at this point.

Everything I've found so far seems to relate to the reverse, syncing folders from gMail to MacMail.

gmail needs to be setup as IMAP. You should then be able to create and sync folders back and forth between the Mac and your IMAP account.

Then it should work. But you have to make the folders in the IMAP section not the My Mac section in the Mailboxes area in Mail.

K, thanks for the extra info. See how it goes tmrw.
Will it be retroactive or would that be based on me moving old messages?

Well, it SHOULD sync. So when you move (or create) a folder in Mail (in your IMAP mailbox) it should sync to your gmail account. How long that takes depends on how much stuff is syncing. But eventually it should sync everything. So whenever you add or take away stuff from one, it will eventually be reflected in the other.

All my gmail addresses were set up as IMAP accounts. I've NEVER been able to get Apple Mail to "play nice" with gmail. I finally gave up and simply view gmail in any browser. I've basically abandoned my Apple email. banghead smiley


APPLE WAKE UP!!!!!!!!!!

Why the hell do you think this is Apple's fault? Gmail doesn't work like any other IMAP mail. Gmail is the problem, not Apple.
