From: Didier Verna <email@example.com> To: Gnus Beta Testers <firstname.lastname@example.org> Subject: Problems with unlabeled mails on Gmail IMAP Date: Tue, 04 Jan 2022 17:19:12 +0100 [thread overview] Message-ID: <email@example.com> (raw) Hello, after hitting the storage limit on Gmail (and being rather surprised by it), I started to investigate on how to make room, and I discovered something very strange. I had *crateloads* of unlabeled emails, emails that would normally have been classified somewhere thanks to nnmail-split-methods, and would have ended up being deleted after a while. Now that I'm watching this very closely, I can see this happening almost in real time. For example, I have an nnmail split method that redirects mailing list traffic to list-specific labels. I know that the split method works because I can see new emails going directly to the right place after hitting 'g'. However, when I go the the gmail web interface and search for has:nouserlabels, I can /also/ see some emails from that (those) list(s), with no tag, and also not in the inbox anymore. So Gnus doesn't see them anywhere. Now if I mark those messages as unread and move them back to inbox (from the web interface), then after hitting 'g', Gnus will see them, and 'B t' or 'B r' work correctly. I'd appreciate it if anyone understands what might be going on... As a side note, something even more puzzling is that has:nouserlabels shows me several messages which /do/ have user labels. I'm even more at a loss here. Note that I don't have any filtering rule on gmail itself. Only nnmail split methods. Thanks, and happy (or better) 22 ! -- @-quartet / ¡En Seguida! live au Sunside, 9 Février 2022, 21h30 ! https://www.sunset-sunside.com/2022/2/artiste/2101/7899/ Lisp, Jazz, Aïkido: http://www.didierverna.info
