Stop Gmail from downloading All Mail folder

I've been using Mail.app with OS X Leopard as a front end to my Gmail account. And it works great, for the most part. Unfortunately it seems to download both my "Inbox" and also the "All Mail" folder from Gmail. This has the effect of increasing the amount of messages in Mail.app significantly, and I want it to stop. [more inside]

Gmail cursor issue

Gmail is behaving really annoyingly for me lately: when I type an email, the cursor suddenly jumps into the text of the email I am answering and/or into something I have previously typed, thereby making it wrong. So, in this question, it might suddenly jump from here to the paragraph above or below rather than going sequentially. I am using firefox. It only does this on the "new version" but it won't stay set on "older version" when I navigate away. Also, it sometimes sends suddenly when I'm working on an email. Google's Help and Newsgroup didn't help. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance!

How can I archive my phone's text messages for future reference, without paying a lot in money or effort?

How can I make an archive of my SMS messages? In this era of network-accessible, searchable, archived, free, multi-gigabyte email storage, I'm a little miffed that my SMS storage is limited to arbitrary limit of 50 message on my phone. Lots of important things come in via SMS, and I hate how they just disappear. I get Twitters from friends, nice notes from my girlfriend, voice mail transcriptions from CallWave, business information via GOOG-411's text service... and so on. I'd like for the solution to cost as little as possible. I don't have an unlimited txt plan (I get a few hundred per month) so simply forwarding every SMS I receive and CCing every SMS I send to an email address isn't a very appealing solution as it really raises my SMS costs and takes effort.

How to fake IMAP access to a Gmail account, with an extra twist?

I manage a small network of users, and currently we are using Google Apps for our domain, and getting mail via POP. I'd very much like to fake IMAP access to Google by creating an intermediary/shadow account (either on our web host, or on our local Apple XServe running OS X 10.4 Server) and configuring it like so: 1. Set Google address to forward automatically to shadow account. 2. Set desktops to check mail through shadow account, but send email through Google's SMTP servers, to keep conversations in tact.

On occasion, I send a mass email to about 200 people. I like to customize the message with the recipient's name in the body. I have used Word/Outlook to do this in the past, but I'd like to find a solution for doing this with Gmail.

Just want it to look professional and show the personalization that I'd like. [more inside]
