Apple mail gmail imap not updating
However, after 16 hours, no emails have been synced.
-- Since originally getting my Gmail account added, I let Nylas run overnight so it could sync all my messages.
If I make any modification, such as changing the description, something interesting happens…The selected outgoing mail server from each account, except the IMAP, disappears and instead “None” is selected.
The workaround is to go through each account and re-select the appropriate outgoing mail server.
Running Nylas Mail in dev mode doesn't rise any errors or flags.
