I recently setup my gmail account with IMAP on my email account.
Unfortunately, I now have a stubborn white folder called [Gmail] that contains all of gmail's folders. I can't get rid of them, or hide them. When mail arrives, it also appears in Gmail's folders. Syncing is a little slow, so it can take a while for messages to be marked as read. Additionally, junk emails do not appear in the junk folder, they appear in the spam folder - which is all the way down my folder list, inside the white gmail folder ... so many more clicks to check that I'm not missing something.
Question One How can I tweak the display of gmail folders in mail.app?
Also, with a second (non-gmail) imap account that I have setup, when I send a message, it appears as unread. Is this due to the way my server (hMailServer) is setup, or just a quirk in mail.app?
Question Two How can I stop messages in my sent folders from showing up as unread? They're read, I just wrote them!
