I created an imap setup with Gmail.
I have a label that I wish to delete most of the messages on the gmail server, however I wish to retain them as a backup on my pc.
If I download them for offline use then if I delete it on gmail it will also be deleted in emClient
If I copy the folder to a local folder without using the download for offline use option, will the full messages still be copied to the local folder?
As a 2nd part to this question, I notice by default images are not downloaded. So if I migrate emails from a label/folder to a local folder than delete the original, I still will not have the images. I don’t want to download images on all emails because this will take too long. If these images are only url based and can be downloaded anytime, even after server email is deleted I am ok with this… understanding that the sender may eventually delete the email from the source url when it is outdated
