According to 9to5Mac, Apple is hard at work prepping an update for Mail that will hopefully fix the Gmail issues, such as missing messages and deleted messages that keep reappearing in the Mail app’s inbox, and has asked testers of the software seed to test the following:

  • Use Mail with your usual Mail accounts, including iCloud, Gmail, Exchange, etc.
  • Send Mail messages
  • Receive and check for new Mail messages at the intervals you expect it
  • Read and move Mail messages to folders on your mail server, folders on your Mac, smart folders.
  • Delete Mail messages as appropriate
  • Undo move or delete actions with your Mail messages
  • Mark messages read/unread in both your mail provider’s webpage and Mail and verify they stay in sync.

If you haven’t experienced any issues with Mail and Gmail, count yourself lucky. For me, my laptop was fine, but my iMac showed an empty Gmail inbox.
