I’m mostly using gmail directly through the web interface. But I want to–as advised in the Eaglefiler manual and elsewhere–to keep an archive on my desktop, using Eaglefiler. So I’d use Mail mainly just for that purpose.
I’m confused about whether I should be using the gmail archiving system AND Eaglefiler archiving or whether Eaglefiling archiving would work better if I abandoned the gmail archiving. Ideally, two archives seems best, but I’m wondering whether they conflict in some ways. (For example, if I archive messages in gmail using the browser,—IMAP setup–does that take them out of Mail—so I couldn’t later archive them using Eaglefiler?)
I guess I don’t really understand how Mail treats archived-in-gmail messages.
