How to Fix the UNDO command in Apple’s when using Gmail

You may have noticed that the UNDO command in Apple’s does not function as expected with Gmail IMAP. For example, when you delete a message and then press Command-Z, nothing happens. Fret no more because there is a workaround to correct this unexpected behavior.

The Workaround

  1. Go to your “Mail Settings” in Gmail.
  2. Click the “Forwarding and POP/IMAP” tab.
  3. Click “Auto-Expunge off – Wait for the client to update the server.”
  4. Click “Save Changes” at the bottom of the page.

Now you should be able to “Undo” your actions in Mail.
