Why is my inbox count in gmail, and apple mail different?

Yesterday, I asked my wife to go to gmail.com and clean my Inbox because I had more than 500 messages there. She joined the gmail.com using my email and password and she cleaned to have only 12 messages.

I didn't know she was done because all day, my apple mail that is related to my gmail has shown the same 500 messages. When I arrived at work this morning, I noticed that he said now 249 messages, so he did, in fact, remove (or archives), some of them. I wonder if those are the only updates that it deleted but not those she archived.

So my question is what I'm doing wrong to my settings. Is that a setting messed where archiving of messages in gmail.com don't check them in apple mail or visa versa or is simply not sync properly?

Thank you



I see tabs for primary school, social, Promotions, updates in Gmail in your browser. You must disable these. Mail will show all emails in all of these tabs.

To disable the feature, click on the sign +. You can then deselect each of these tabs.

  • Gmail and Apple Mail - POP IMAP

    I converted about 10 POP IMAP e-mail accounts.  In the process, I lost thousands of emails associated with my ISP email accounts. It was really my fault... water under the bridge.

    It's bad enough, but the worst is Gmail. I never use Gmail online. With pop, I just received messages via Apple Mail and delete or remove messages on my MBP.

    Now, after having converted the IMAP accounts, I get all gmail messages I've ever sent or received, down, responsible for Apple Mail and I can't understand how to stop them.  He now has a record of archive which regenerates every time that I have trash all messages.  There are a multitude of other questions as well.

    At this point all my accounts are offline until I can figure out what to do.  All advice is greatly appreciated.

    • IMAP accounts: Messages are stored on an e-mail server until you delete them. When your account connects to the server, it is synchronized so that the messages on your Mac are the same as those on the server. Messages are accessible from different computers and locations where you use the account.
    • POP accounts: Messages are stored on an e-mail server and are downloaded to your Mac when you access your account. Messages remain on the server until they are deleted from the server.
  • Anyone having problems with messages of script with the new version of GMail and Yahoo Mail? All the others seem fine and no problems with other browsers. With the help of FF25

    Gmail and Yahoo mail are very slow to load. I get a message from the script almost whenever instruct me to continue or to stop the script. Everything I have shut down or restart the browser goes blank and hangs. So, I have to restart Firefox. I followed suggestions on the help pages for the slow e-mail accounts or issues. (cleared cache etc, reset etc.) nothing solves the problem. I only noticed the problem since the first update of FF25. Scripts to stop even on these pages is not acceptable, because you are directed to the pages who insist you must restart scripts. It's a nightmare! Gmail both Yahoomail are very slow to respond to clicks more.

    Your list of details of the system shows that you have a user.js file in the profile folder to initialize some preferences at each start of Firefox.

    The user.js file appears only if you or another software created, therefore, normally, he wouldn't be here.
    You can check its contents with a text editor if you do not create this file yourself.

    The user.js file is read whenever you launch Firefox and initializes the preferences to the value specified in this file, so set of preferences via user.js can be changed temporarily for the current session.

    You can rename or delete the prefs.js file and numbered possible prefs-# .js and the file user.js to reset all default prefs.

    You can use this button to go to the Firefox profile folder:

    • Help > troubleshooting information > profile directory: see file (Linux: open the directory;) Mac: View in the Finder)

    Note that the folder "Application Data" in XP/Win2K and the "AppData" folder in Windows Vista and Windows 7 and later versions are hidden folders.

  • Why can I not see my gmail mailboxes in mail in El Capitan?

    I do not see my gmail mailboxes in mail

    Gmail is not the mailboxes, there labels, that is why he is PITA to use on a standard email client.

    Check the settings in the web portal of Gmail and check to see if they are set to show in IMAP tab labels.

  • How can I retrieve multiple accounts gmail and yahoo mail lost in change of corrupt uninstall earlier version to a version more recent installation?

    Laptop became horribly slow online. Tests suggested corruption Firefox. R/R to the current version. Two mailboxes (everyone) are maintained as the last in use. All others are lost in the transition. Gmail and Yahoo do not recognize my new settings Firefox beyond two registered accounts. I have several accounts for various uses. I want to get back them, but there is no clear process for this. In addition, the same thing happened to all the saved passwords (planned) so I re-saved many of them. However, LinkedIn, Ebay, PayPal, Twitter, etc... not recognized. Lost mail customers say systems do not exist while the members accounts remain locked to lost email accounts. I appreciate your solutions or, if necessary, of the suggestions-such as support useful contacts to Gmail and Yahoo. Thanks,-Ed

  • How can I connect gmail and hotmail, mail for Windows 8?

    I just got a new laptop which had Windows 8 above.  I want that all my email accounts to be dumped in the "Mail" box on my Office Windows 8.  How can I connect all?  I have gmail and two different hotmail accounts.

    Hi Carol,.

    You can easily add new email accounts in Mail by going to 'Settings'-> 'Accounts', while in the Mail application. You can get to the settings to either swipe to the right and by choosing the icon on the bottom of the settings of charms (looks like a gear) or by typing the Windows key and 'i' at the same time.

    Once you have opened the 'Accounts', choose the option at the bottom to add accounts.

    Thank you

    Hi guys, I support provider in PA (ap_suppliers) thanks to the Interface table (ap_suppliers_int), but my confusion is that ap_suppliers have 8 required columns, but its interface ap_suppliers_int have only 2 column.why? mandatory and also with these 2 columns also load records.

    Kind regards

    Yes sometimes it is and also depends on the current configuration of oracle. Some of the fields are automatically generated.

    sometimes better to analyze the package to interface and then use the interface programs.

  • Delete messages from Gmail, but keep in Apple Mail?

    Hi all.

    I use Apple Mail to download my Gmail via IMAP (Apple Mail 9.3, OSX 10.11.5).

    The problem is that my Gmail account is complete. To free up space in Gmail, I want to delete messages from Gmail, but keep them locally in Apple Mail. How can I do? I guess it's the server settings, but I don't know if I need to tinker with the Apple Mail, Gmail server settings, or both.

    I tried to delete the messages in Gmail, but Apple Mail sync with Gmail and delete them locally, too.

    Thank you!

    Activate the sidebar of accounts, so you can see the hierarchy of depot.

    You should see a section here which says on my Mac. Click to show it, then right click to add box to the letters it. Call it something like old Gmail 2008-2014. Now you can select your old Gmails mainly Gmail Inbox and sent boxes and drag them to this mailbox on my Mac (folder). If you move hundreds or thousands of emails, here could be a delay before they appear in the new location, so don't panic.

    Note: Many users choose simply to archive old emails, but do in Gmail, still continues to them on the server, if you're not reduce used storage space.

  • Microsoft Family safety began just prevent Chrome GMail and Google Reader works on a child account - anyone know why?

    I am running Windows 7 and use parental control for several years.  My kids use Google Chrome with GMail and GoogleDrive for a lot of their homework.  In recent days on the child accounts Chrome slow down considerably with the message "establish a secure connection" when it starts for centuries, and then finally "Gmail App is not available".  After trying everything else (cookies, compensation, disabling extensions, historical disconnect account) I turned off parental control of Microsoft, and Chrome came back to life.  I've now changed the security settings to "block adult sites" to "warn on adult sites" and Chrome works very well.  I'm not happy to leave this setting to warn but need to at the moment, so that they can do their homework.  Is this a Microsoft problem or is there anything else I can try to solve it?
