Hi John - Did you get my reply. What you suggested did not work. Notes was already turned off on my iPad
John, it is notes and reminders that I have put into the iPad weeks and months ago. They have been deleted from the iPad but they keep reappearing in the lower gmail account (all mail)
I don't understand on my iMAC why the gmail account under inbox seems to be different from the gmail account at the bottom where it says all mail. The notes and reminders are appearing again after they have been deleted.
Why does it appear that there are two inboxes for the gmail account
John - I am not sure how I am accessing gmail. How can we check it?
I click on Patti's Gmail in Mailboxes (under Inbox) on the left side at the top of my iMac. I do not click on an icon
Did you get my response? I don't click on an icon. I open mail and click on Patti's gmail in Inboxes at the top left of the screen under mailboxes.
Yes, I use the icon at the bottom of the iMac - the postage stamp to open mail
the version is 10.7.5
It is checked for MOVE DELETED MESSAGES TO TRASH MAILBOX
It is NOT checked for STORE DELETED MESSAGES FROM THE SERVER
PERMANENTLY ERASE DELETED MESSAGES WHEN ONE MONTH OLD.
Most of these notes that are in all mail are last May and June and they keep coming back into the All Mail account after I have deleted them
OK I have checked the second option.
The account type is Google IMAP
OK done - I made the changes. I had a bit of trouble finding the gear icon near the upper right and now my iMac is full screen and I can't see any of the Mac icons that are always at the bottom like the postage stamp etc. How do I get the regular screen back?
That seemed to work and I have removed the ALL Mail account. Does this mean that notes, tasks, reminders will not be connected in any way to my gmail account? Is there anything else I need to do?
You get an excellent rating from me. Have a great day.
One more question:
Now under Sent in the upper part of the left side Patti's Gmail account is listed but there are no sent messages in there.
Further down under Patti's Gmail there is also a sent mail category and all of my sent messages are in there. Can we set it up so they only appear in the upper sent section where my other two e-mail accounts are?
store drafts is checked off
store notes is checked off
store sent messages is checked off
store deleted messages is checked off
store junk is NOT CHECKED OFF
YES, THERE IS A CHECK MARK PRESENT ON ALL OF THEM EXCEPT JUNK MAIL
That worked John and now there is only one sent box and it is below the other two sent boxes for our other two accounts. It is now gone from down below under gmail.
There are still two trash buckets on the sidebar. Can we get rid of the one down below under gmail and have just one that all trash goes into from all three e-mail addresses?
Thank you. It worked and now there is only one Trash bucket. It has 4 sub categories - On My Mac, Patti Home, Andrew Home and Patti's Gmail.
The one for On My Mac is empty. What is it for?
We only have the three e-mail address and I have not seen this On My Mac trash folder on the sidebar before.
