My guess was just that it moves messages to the “Archive” folder, which Gmail interprets as the “[Gmail]/Archive]” label.  But I don’t really know.

Thanks for the suggestions: this time around it did load.  I added the “All Mail” “Important” and “Starred” subscriptions, which got the missing messages in, but then added some messages in duplicate (Starred) and triplicate (Starred and Important).  So I removed the gmail source, and added it back.  Same initial problem.  This time I just subscribed to “All Mail” and now it all looks good.

Thank you, Henry and Eric, for making my first post such a friendly and helpful experience!
