I access gmail using IMAP on my Mac OS X.

When I delete a mail, it vanishes from Mail but if I quit Mail.app and start it again, the mail is there again.

It seems to be impossible to delete a mail from gmail using Mail.app IMAP.

Am I missing something?

after delete mail are you empty your trash? –  Am1rr3zA Jul 25 '10 at 19:33
    
yes I do and I also do ERASE DELETED MESSAGES... it appears to vanish. then I quit Mail and when I start it again, the message is there. The only way to delete something is from gmail page. This is pretty annoying. –  Mike Jul 25 '10 at 21:43

You should setup your client as Google recommends, see here: http://mail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?answer=78892# (expand the "Apple Mail" section)

apparently the settings were corrupted. I deleted the plist, reload the mail, adjust the settings and it is now working. THANKSS!!!!! –  Mike Jul 25 '10 at 21:48

Have you changed all the settings they list here?
