Spot on; I deleted all of the messages in Sent and the problem cleared
up. As you can see there were the usual number of replies. However I did
get them all in my Evolution download after deleting all of my old sent
messages. I sent a test message to Gmail and indeed it is in sent, and
all mail, so I would never get it in a download. I really don't want to
mess with 'fetchmail, mutt, or any of the other possible means of
solving this if I can locate a way to do what I want. I also don't want
to move my mail to another host as I have it set up to way too many of
my customers. I may try what Leisi suggested by changing my SMTP host
tomy ISP. That actually seems to be the easiest answer.

I did a lot of research on this over the last couple of days. I read
virtually everything on gmail's help system & have determined that the
issue is actually with them and the process of using "Lables" instead of
folders as ways of sorting out mail. I don't usually use the gmail web
interface, I normally have evolution download, filter, etc. the mail
from several hosts. But I want to be able to access the gmail web
interface & use it when traveling or from my phone. Since you were the
only person to supply a real tip to resolving this, I was wondering if
you might know the answer to either of these questions.
1. Any way to get the gmail system to leave or put everything in the
Inbox? Their "HELP" offers nothing regarding this.
2. Any way to tell evolution to download & delete what's in the All Mail
label I have never tried to tell any mail app which folder to download
from, not sure if it's possible.
Thanks to all who supplied any possible means of fixing this.
