It looks like it's already deleted, but for some reason MailMate does 
not know this. Relaunching might clear this up, but if it doesn't then 
I'd like to debug the issue. (Ideally, I'd like a sequence of steps 
which reproduces the issue, but that might be tricky since I suspect 
race conditions could be involved.)

There's a (possibly) separate issue. The `[THROTTLED]` part of the 
response means that there has been more traffic between you and the 
server than Google allows. This should only happen when initially 
synchronizing a large account. Otherwise, it's a sign that something is 
“looping”. Is it a large account in terms of the number of messages 
and/or an account with a large number of mailboxes?
