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 to IMAP.
