I got mutt up and working with GMail in 12.04LTS. One issue I have is when I delete a message, it get placed in the GMail Trash folder, but the inbox label is not removed. Is there a way to fix this?

I have IMAP Gmail account that uses something like Gmail-IMAP/Trash for Wastebasket but Evolution uses Wastebasket -dir by default. Alert terminology differs: directory is label in Gmail -terminology, anyway now clear enough. So how can I change the Trash -directory in Evolution?
I believe the problem lies in IMAP and different email-clients.
Hi,i'm reinventing mutt on my new notebook, i'm trying to use my old configuration file (gmail/imap) which worked fine on my old machine. But after i start Mutt it hangs on:Fetching message headers... 0/12345 (0%)I have tried it with another (no gmail) account but with the same result.
If I move an email to a folder in Outlook 2013 and my Android tablet with Gmail is connected to the internet, the email will remain in my inbox. When I check Gmail, the email was indeed 'labeled' with the new folder, but it retains the 'inbox' label in Gmail. If my tablet is off, however, the email will correctly move to the folder and the 'inbox' label will be removed in Gmail.
Re the wiki entry on setting up mutt with Gmail IMAP. To get this working, I don't need fetchmail or msmtp (or some other smtp program)? mutt connects directly via IMAP and SMTP? I'm asking because there is what appears to be a much more complicated guide here.The wiki is referenced on SuperUser here.
How does one interactively rename an IMAP folder within the mutt MUA? Currently, if I want to change a folder name, I use the gmail web browser interface, but this is rather inefficient. Is there an equivalent of the unix mv command in mutt?
When I search for this topic on google, the search results pertain to renaming local mutt folders and files like .muttrc.
In one article, I have talked about mutt, a text based mail client. Although not as popular as Thunderbird or Evolution, mutt still has the love of many avid Linux users. If you just want to read the text of the emails like me, you should consider using mutt as the default mail client.
