That's bad news. I guess this might mean that your INBOX does somehow 
use a lot of bandwidth. Maybe because of some kind of MailMate bug. This 
is unlikely though *if* the INBOX does not have a persistent spinner 
*and* it's using a bolded font most of the time (under Sources in the 
mailbox list). The so-called IDLE state used for the INBOX should use 
very little bandwidth.

The only other thing I can think of is if you still have 1 or more other 
mailboxes online, in particular, “[Gmail]/All Mail”.

If possible, maybe some time during this weekend, take the account 
completely offline for as long as possible.

Also make sure you don't have other email clients, possibly on other 
devices, accessing the Gmail account.

I don't believe it applies to bandwidth issues, but some other Gmail 
issues only resolve by logging in using webmail. That might be worth a

For throttling issues, updating also won't make a difference. I haven't 
changed anything related to this.

For the record (for the mailing list archive), the bandwidth limits 
involved in Gmail throttling can be found 
[here](https://support.google.com/a/answer/1071518?hl=en). It's 
currently 2500 MB (IMAP download) per day. (The same page contains some 
general Gmail recommendations.)
