Labels Issue with Gmail and moving to folder


This bug happens enough to be very annoying. When I move an email to a folder or if I delete an email from my inbox. The previous email in my inbox is doing the same action.

This causes to lose a lot of emails.

Could you please help me with that?


  • OS: Mac OS Catalina 10.15.7
  • Mailspring Version: 1.7.8

I might be missing something but I can’t tell from your post what the actual problem is. Are you saying that when you move or delete one message, the message above it is also moved or deleted?

How long has this been going on? And how many times have you restarted your computer since the problem started?

Does it happen every time or just sometimes?

Does it happen when you drag and drop, AND when you use the top bar icons? What about when you right click (control click) on a message?

Hi Amanda,

Thanks for your answer.
Yes, when I move a message, the message above is moved to the same folder or archived. It really happens randomly when I move messages.

It’s been happening since I downloaded the app 5 months ago.

It usually happened when I go fast while moving messages.

It doesn’t happen with the drag and drop option. It only happens with the top bar icons.

Hope that helps

Seems to be the same problem I reported:

Seems like most of the critical marked issues are related to this. Let’s hope we see a fix soon :slight_smile:

Good thought, @WoutDebacker. I believe this is also related to these issues:
