I'm trying to sort out my
I access some emails outside of the Mail client, so I need to know where emails wind up, and it seems to have changed a bit with gmail in particular.
First, does Mail now store all the actual gmail messages in
~/Library/Mail/V2/IMAPfirstname.lastname@example.org/[Gmail].mbox/All Mail.mbox? I note that I have mailboxes corresponding to the gmail labels, and which act like mailboxes in Mail itself. IIRC Mail used to actually put gmails into those mailboxes, but not sure.
Second, is it a default for the Mac OS to keep old email accounts forever? Whenever I delete an account from Mail it leaves the entire IMAPemail@example.com email mailbox structure intact. I assume I can move these off my SSD. Does Spotlight still index them?
Finally, any way to associate attachments with their respective emails without somehow going through the Mail client?
