It can be very tricky to verify Gmail message counts. The webmail
interface only counts threads (last time I checked).

MailMate should download the messages in “All Mail” which it doesn't
expect to download in other IMAP folders. For example, a sent email
should only be shown (by MailMate) in the “[Gmail]/Sent Mail”
mailbox and not in “All Mail”. I've written a bit about what
MailMate does to handle Gmail
For debugging, I need you to first locate a specific email unexpectedly
not showing up anywhere in MailMate for your Gmail account.
