Hi

My university uses a gmail account, which I access via gnus.

My setting for the starred messages is


(defvar  group-name-map '(
			  ("nnimap+UCMgmail:[Gmail]/Starred" . "UCM-Flags-Starred")
			  ("nnimap+gmail:[Google Mail]/Starred". "Gmail-Flags-Starred"))
  "*Varible to replace problematic `Group/Folder' names in Gmail.")

That works nice for every new started message. However I cannot read
starred messages before the 22nd May 2020.

I have set 
[X] Display: Value Menu all
    Which articles to display on entering the group. More

[ ] Comment: 
    An arbitrary comment on the group.

[X] Permanently visible
    Always display this group, even when there are no unread articles in it.

Via customize and used 
C-u topic-select-group

I am asked how many articles, available are 4446, I select 4000, but I
am only presented with 500. 

I am puzzled.

Any ideas?

Regards

Uwe Brauer

This could be a gmail-ism?  Gmail groups are not really IMAP groups...

What happens when you ask for older articles once you are in the group
summary buffer ("/o", bound to gnus-summary-insert-old-articles)?

It does not help. What I do notice is the fact that the registry
complains that it is full

Trying to prune the registry because it’s full

It gets even more strange, I cannot access all my IMAP INBOX mails.

There is a gap starting from 31 August 2019 till 1. January 2020.

I can see these message in Gmail's web interface and also in
thunderbird.

That is really really odd.

I run into this problem sometimes when a gmail group has some cached
(gnus cache) articles in it.

The older articles are discovered (again) by running:

M-g, <menu-bar> <Group> <Check for new articles>

on the group (Check for new news in the current topic.)

I don't think the registry will have any impact on your problem.

What happens if, in the group buffer, you hit M-g on the line for this
group?  I find that this sometimes helps reset gnus's own view of what
articles are available.

Thanks, did not work neither. So the only way to access these messages
seems to be by entering the Gmail/All Mails group.

Strange. But gmail seems to be strange

I no longer use gmail for this and (many) other reasons...

Right, but my university does, and so I am forced to follow suit (and I don't
want to give up gnus of course)

I've got the same situation with Outlook: that's what our university
uses and I have no choice either.  Not ideal.

Incredible that in the academic world MS prevails.

Decisions taken by the central computing service department without
serious consultation with any of the actual users (in my opinion, of
course) ... of course, anybody not using MS Windows was ignored. :-(
