mutt and gmail - "muting" threads

mutt and gmail - "muting" threads

Post by stuar » Tue, 19 Oct 2010 17:39:22

I use mutt to read and write emails via a gmail account.

I have set up mutt so that I can move mails to the Starred directory
using a couple of keystrokes. If I go into gmail via a web browser these
mails appear with a star beside them.

One of the facilities gmail has that I like is the ability to "mute"
threads. To mute a thread in the web browser it's necessary only to
press the m key while viewing the mail and that thread no longer appears
in the inbox, it goes straight to "All mail".

I'd like to be able to mute threads with mutt, but haven't found a way
to do it.

There is no "Muted" directory among the gmail directories to which to
assign emails. I have searched some muted mails including their entire
headers to find a clue to how gmail flags threads as muted, but can't
work out how it's done. And I've searched the 'net for clues, advice or
instructions, but can find none.

So, I'm here now to ask: can anyone out there tell me how I can flag
threads muted with mutt?

2. A few questions on using mutt with gmail

Dear mutt users,
I have about 6000 messages archived in gmail email account. Now I want
to pop them to my local laptop.

1 for each G operation(get mail from server), only between 300-400
mails are fetched. Is there a means to pop all mails to the local
machine at once?

2 I want to archive all the downloaded mails to a mailbox named
'temp', because each time I launch mutt, it takes a while to scan the
mailbox with thousands of emails and it greatly slows the my speed of
processing new incoming emails. Is there a way to do this?

I am still a novice to mutt and thanks for helping!
