Greyed out emails in Mail.app

Greyed out emails in Mail.app

Within Mail.app on my Gmail account, deleting or moving items no longer removes that item from the Inbox; instead they appear greyed out.

"Since you're using IMAP, it's possible these deleted messages are being shown, when they should not be.

From the menu, choose View → Hide Deleted Messages, or press ⌘ + L on your keyboard.

That should do the trick."

"Seen this before. Click on the account under Inbox then do Mailbox -> Rebuild and it should move those. If you have a lot of accounts you can rebuild for all of them by exiting from Mail.app, delete ""/Users/YOURNAME/Library/Mail/Envelope Index"". When you restart Mail.app, it should rebuild all of your folders.

This is sort of a quick fix, though. Don't know what causes it."
