No, it's proof that you don't understand how to deal with IMAP. And
regarding size: My _entire_ suckless inbox which reaches back nearly
two years is only 68M, which is a joke.
I'm sure Google doesn't want to have 68M stored on their servers, so
that's why your inbox fills up. You don't want old mails to sync anyway,
so make backups or use POP3 for strict archiving, or run your own
bloody mailserver. :P
