View Full Version : [ubuntu] BEAGLE and GMAIL: "All Mail" folder

August 12th, 2009, 11:29 PM
Hello everybody, i'm a novice user
I installed beagle today and tried to make it index gmail, but i couldn't get it to index the "all mail" folder... i can get it to index any other folder, but looks like "all mail" being two words is a problem, and it doesn't work


beagle-config GoogleBackends GMailSearchFolder Inboxworks, while

beagle-config GoogleBackends GMailSearchFolder All Maildoesn't work.

beagle-config GoogleBackends GMailSearchFolder "All Mail"doesn't work either

is it possibile to make it work? what command should I use?

thanks everybody, and I hope this is the right section of the forums

I was just trying to work out the same thing... and I have solved it, if you are still interested.

"All Mail" is a subfolder of the special folder Google creates called "[Google Mail]". On this page of Gmail's online documentation (http://mail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=82367) and in the Beagle documentation (http://beagle-project.org/Live_GMail_Search), it says the name is "[Gmail]" but that doesn't seem to work for me.

(I worked out the correct folder name by connecting Thunderbird to Google's IMAP service and seeing what folders appeared for me).

So the command which finally worked for me was

beagle-config GoogleBackends GMailSearchFolder "[Google Mail]/All Mail"
