Nice job, Eric.

FYI, in my case I have one Gmail account on my MM account. Structurally 
I’ve had difficulty with All Mail in G-World and don’t use it 
(turned off in Gmail settings).

What I do use are specific non-Gmail archive mailboxes by year dating 
back to 2021. I backup the rest locally and remove them from the server 

I also notice that the Edit Subscriptions tab in IMAP settings on 
version 1.14, Test Build r5908 no longer works. So, I just saw this 
after updating a couple of days ago and consider this a bug which I will 
report to Benny. If this happens to you, the way I cleared it was to 
call up another non-G-Mail account, load the Edit Subscriptions there 
and go back to Gmail account.

Using ONLY these G-specific default mailboxes in the sub-category list 
showing in MM inside a [Gmail] folder:
* Drafts
* SentMail
* Trash

The remainder of G-specific (default) mailboxes are turned off at the 
source settings.
