I want to try out the new Mail.app but I can't seem to find a way to unsubscribe from certain IMAP folders using my Gmail account. If I right-click on any folder and select "Get Account Info", and click on the Subscription List tab, the list refreshes but no folders appear.
I do not want to use Gmail's server-side label hiding/message count limiting because I want other machines to be able to download all of my email for backup purposes.
Is there an alternative way to limit the folders that Mail.app downloads, or to limit the number of messages per folder that are downloaded (as is possible on iOS)?
Did folder subscriptions work in Snow Leopard, or is this just a long-standing incompatibility between Gmail and Mail.app?
