You need to set up your IMAP client as Google instruct in order for the Gmail labels to work. See Recommended IMAP client settings
If you client is one of (iPhone, Thunderbird, Apple Mail, Outlook) then click the link and read Google's specific instructions for those clients.
Otherwise, you need to configure your client as follows:

Gmail does not natively support reading imap based emails so you will need to use an intermediary solution. In this case I suggest following the answer on a related question:
Per Microsoft's website:
The IMAP protocol is unsupported, they only support POP3.
"The upgrade process supports email accounts using Post Office Protocol 3 (POP3), but not Instant Message Access Protocol (IMAP). A protocol is a standard set of formats and procedures that allow PCs to exchange information."
For you phone they say you can either ...
Select Exchange account, fill in your username and password, depending on what mobile OS you using, one one step or two, you should get to screen where you will be asked to fill in the server name along with username and password.
In Domain\Username, fill in your complete email address and password. In Server, when you login to the web version of your ...
You change the default settings only if you're a super admin.
Login to mail.zoho.com as Super Admin.
Go to Control panel
Click on the email address
And you can modify the IMAP and POP setting for all the users in the organization.
Hope this helps.
This forwarding from AOL to Gmail can no longer be done. When I inquired of AOL I received this response (11/9/18):
Thank you for contacting the AOL Email Support Team.
Unfortunately, at this moment, there is no option available that satisfies your needs. The only option to forward emails is manually, one by one. Rest assured that your email has not ...
While it may seem counter-intuitive, Google believes your IMAP client is a "less secure application" relative to your web browser. You must therefore
Allow less secure apps: If you don't use 2-Step Verification, you might need to allow less secure apps to access your account.

OK, seeing the "this computer only" name change gave me a clue. I know how to solve this, but I don't know what caused it. And there's an extra, "keep safe" step to the solution.
A. Create a new folder. For example, my folder was called "A/B/External (This computer only)", and "A/B/Family (This computer only)", so I've created "A/B/New External" and "A/B/...
The "web login required error" means that Gmail
is not recognizing your password or
you are signing from a new location or device or
you have enabled 2-Step Verification for your account.
You need to generate an Application specific password for MsgExtract.

In your IMAP client try using search to find unread messages as "snooze" is not the same as any other Gmail feature.

Without more details, I think that the best option is to do the bulk operations in http://mail.google.com just before you could left alone your Thunderbird instance for several hours, as the sync process could take "a while" and consume "a lot" of resources of your computer.

Google support suggests that if you're migrating from one Gmail/Google Apps account to a different Gmail/Google Apps account, just use POP3 between them. (Directions here)
However, you want to only copy/move some of the messages.
I would use a third-party email client that can connect to Gmail via IMAP. (Thunderbird would probably be my choice.)
It would appear that in an attempt to draw a line in the sand and increase functionality and synchronization times, Microsoft has adopted the implementation of EAS (Exchange Active Sync). Whilst this is a good measure within the Office & Windows Mobile based environment, it does alienate the other mobile communities.
In reality I doubt that it will be ...
It supports Exchange Active Sync. I haven't found any info regarding IMAP though.
Whups! I might have attached the wrong link, since it mentions Office 365 and not outlook.com. However The Verge says it will support Exchange Active Sync just like Hotmail does. But I'm a little unsure of exactly what settings to use.
Here we go an article that described how ...
Gmail doesn't offer end users a way to block email messages, but you could set a filter to automatically process them, i.e. mark as spam, delete them, apply a label, as you already did.
Besides this you could set which labels will sync through IMAP with email client. So you could disable the SPAM, Trash or both labels for a while, until Google block those ...
Generally, when users set up IMAP, the biggest complaints focus on the initial syncing from the server in-box to the user's in-box, often taking an extended period while the 1,000's of emails on the server are transferred to Outlook. This is completely avoidable and for many entirely unnecessary. A lot depends upon how often the users rely on indexed ...
I am quite late to respond the thread. Recently I did the same task which I am going to share.
You can backup Gmail account data by using the free Google takeout tool. But it will create .mbox file for backed up emails which cannot be open or imported directly into MS Outlook. For that you need to convert MBOX file to PST format using a reliable tool ...
POP3 is not possible because, I think, it doesn't sync labels.
The only other thing is to setup Outlook to only sync specific labels (with IMAP).
Possibly another mail client (like Thunderbird or Evolution) would perform better?
You could try POPing/IMAPing your email to an email client, using one of the various spam filter solutions.
Back in the days before I was 100% using Gmail (2008?), I was a big fan of SpamPal under Windows. But it looks now to be a dead project (although there are some recent kudos on the sourceforge page, so I think it still might work).
One caveat with ...
I'm quite sure this is currently not possible from within Gmail.
You can try to sync ALL your mail with f.e. Thunderbird or Outlook and look for a way to do the trick in that program, I don't know much of these so I don't know if it's possible with them.
But I'm sure Gmail can't.
