On OS X 10.8.3, in Mail, is there a way to change the account folder that the "Archive" button sends the mail messages to?
For example, on GMail it should go into "All Mail".
I found the answer here.
- Close Mail;
- Go to
Accounts.plist(make a backup just in case);
- Find the key-string pair:
- Change the
<string>tag value to your desired archive folder name, e.g.
All Maildepending on your account folder naming scheme.
- Save the file;
- Reopen Mail
The Archive folder(s) will now apear with their own icon on the left pane and not as regular folders.
You can also add an archive button to the toolbar.
And if you'd like to turn off archiving all together, setting this string to "NO" seems to work
Be aware, a program update from Apple might undo these changes.
