    Default "All Mail" sync with gmail?

    Hi, I just found Zimbra Desktop and am currently evaluating it as a possible Thunderbird replacement. I have a "google for your domain" account, so I set up the email using the Gmail option and just put in my domain email. The account created folders for my tags (which is what I would expect), but there is no 'All Mail' folder which contains all of my email. Is it not an option to sync that folder? I tried manually creating the folder, and I also tried changing the relevant lines in the datasource.properties, but I still can't seem to get that folder to sync. Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

    Hi, Gmail has a very peculiar implementation of IMAP. Gmail labels are projected as IMAP folders. "All Mail" is really a label of all emails. If we sync down things like "All Mail" or "Starred" we'd be duplicating a lot of data. A 10G mailbox online would become a 30G mailbox on your disk

    BUt then where does it store these e-mail? I can see InBox and other labeled email but there is no mail that belong to "All Mail"

    that's because we deliberately avoided downloading "All Mail" to avoid duplicating everything on your local disk.

    I wish to have a way to overwrite this because all of my "Archived" e-mail are now label as "All Mail" so my Zimba box will miss all of those mail because these e-mails does nothave any other label!

    Thanks,

    Just so you know, I think Zimbra Desktop is a very cool product. Given that it is in Beta stage, I would give it my best to help making it better.

    With that said, please help me with a URL where I can file a bug. I am a new comer to Zimbra.
    Thanks,
