View Full Version : Not Importing All of Gmail in Mail - How to?

25th January 2010, 09:53 AM
Hi Guys,

Couldn't find anything in the searches, but I could be wrong... It has been known!

Firstly, I'm new to the world of mac - a week so far, I got a new job and the offer of any laptop, so I thought why not!

So, I've setup my Gmail into my mac mail, but I really don't need an archive on the mac - I'd be more than happy with only 30 days email on the mac, and leave the archive on the interweb (for this account).

Coupled with this, I don't really want anything but the inbox on the mac (eg I have filters for newsletters, facbook notifications etc) that never see the light of day unless I want them to - I how do I make mail only sync the folders and dates I need to?

Any advice much appreciated - I know I used to be able to do this with Thunderbird (methinks), just that it's taking up loads of my quota and there's no need for it. Oh - all done on IMAP, btw :)
