Apple mail gmail imap not updating updating split entry
The issue we faced in with Mac, currently running Mac OS Sierra 10.12.3, and using Mail Mac App, its not able to download the IMAP folder hierarchy from Zoho servers, not matter if we use INBOX or / prefix, it cant see the folders, and cannot connect Sent/Draft/Trash to server, and keeps switching them to local. nothing did really help on Mac, checked all forums and tips and help, did every thing as described, but still cannot download folders from server to Mac Mail App.
It’s a pretty safe bet that you have a Gmail account for at least one of your email addresses.
To do this, go to and log in with the account you are setting up. In the drop-down menu that appears, select Settings.
This will take you to all of the settings related to Gmail.
Because of this, most Mac users rely on to do all the heavy lifting of their day‐to‐day email use.
For safety’s sake, leaving this set to the default of Archive the message is best.
This means that any time you hit the Delete button in Apple Mail on your Mac, the email on the server gets dumped in the archive folder inside of Gmail.
The email is gone from your computer, but is backed up and archived in your Gmail account in case you ever need it again.
If you care about privacy and need to make sure deleted emails are really deleted, choose the Immediately delete the message forever option.
