I use AirMail on my phone, which is a decent although not perfect
client. My main issues are:
1. Reply-To copies the previous to to the reply, instead of just
replying to the sender. (Not a big deal).
2. Filing/Deleting/Archiving a thread acts on *everything* in the
thread, including the messages in my Sent folder. (That's just wrong.)
3. Archiving on GMail simply removes the tags and leaves the message
in "All Mail".
That last one took me a while to figure out. I have an AirMail action
that copies the message to OmniFocus and then archives it. (The
ability to create custom actions is one of the reasons I like
AirMail). I would do that, and then go to my Mac. OmniFocus would have
a link to the message (airmail:, but I have a script to change it to a
message: link), and I'd launch it…and nothing. The message had
disappeared from MailMate.
I assume there's no good way to make messages just available in All
Messages visible in MailMate?
Never assume MM can't do something... If you edit the subscriptions for
a GMail account you have the option of subscribing to mailboxes under
the '[GMail]' subtree, including "All Mail' and the other GMail
defaults. It appears from a quick peek at my GMail account that Benny
has worked out a de-duplication scheme to make sure 'All Mail' only
shows messages not otherwise tagged. Nice.
So while I work on the AirMail folks to add an option to make Archive
move things to an Archive folder (which is what they do with Exchange,
and presumably with normal IMAP),
"Normal IMAP" isn't a thing. :) There's just a cluster of largely
similar implementations including Dovecot & Cyrus and a diffuse flock of
weird other things like GMail and Exchange that are only vaguely related
