Limit emails to Inbox for Gmail

Sun Nov 23, 2014 11:53 am

The app displays emails in Gmail for other folders in addition to the Inbox.

I have several folders which I use as working folders when mobile (@4Filing, @Cloud, etc) and these contain emails that have already been dealt with and should not appear in Mailwasher.

Emails should be limited to those in the Inbox.

When they have IMAP working, this will be restricted to the Inbox though I hope we get to choose the folders for IMAP eventually as you can with the desktop MWP.

IMAP is indeed working on Gmail, and the app only reads the Inbox.

:D

Could not set up my Gmail account manually but syncing fro MWP seems to have worked. Though I have noticed the port is 995 and not 993 as specified on the Google help pages.

Is the new delete process that also removes from All Mail implemented in this version?

Update: I see the deletes are not being removed from All Mail :thumbsdown :cry

OK, we'll look in to the port setting - that's odd.

Can you go over the delete problem again? Is the problem only for labeled emails? It's not a Gmail Settings in 'POP3, IMAP and forwarded email'?

Due to a known strangness with the way Google handles deletes via IMAP, when you delete any labels are removed from that email then it is archived thus the deleted email can be found by going to All Mail.

This could be fixed with my request: http://forum.firetrust.com/viewtopic.php?f=55&t=15626

Are you seeing all your sent items in the Inbox too?

I can't replicate what you're seeing, if I add a label to an email, then delete it, it goes straight to 'Bin' (I guess that's Trash) and it's not in All Mail.

Example:

The subscription email from this forum gets to my Gmail inbox with no labels, I then delete using MWM, go to the Gmail iOS app and the inbox is empty, go to the All Mail folders and hey-presto there the email is :thumbsdown :scratch

Note: in MailWasher Mobile these emails are identified as Good.

Isn't that the Google setup that makes the determination.

Yes, but some time ago Nick said he was going to do some specific code for Gmail to make it not leave the deleted stuff in All Mail, unless I read his post wrongly.

Thinking about this, since there is currently no way to restore from the mobile RB, having them go to All Mail may not be all bad e.g. a fail safe for an Aw S_it. :D

Yes, I was thinking the same and is 'All Mail' used very often? I think the Trash keeps the deleted emails for 30 days anyway. As we build on the features for IMAP I think we'll be able to offer these kinds of options including not limiting the checked mail to just the inbox.
