Thanks for your question Eric. :)

Of course, INBOX works  for you if you do not archive  the message in All
emails folder or elsewhere. If you move it from INBOX, in case where you
like to have the cleanest INBOX that  is the empty one, you won't get no
more the email via this link.

I wanted to have in IMAP the  shortest list to see only three folders in
my Gnus 
[Gmail]/Tous les messages

I have defined shortucts: key "Inser" archives email into
[Gmail]/Tous    les   messages    and   "Suppr"    sends   email    into

The most  tricky is to  get the Summary  [Gmail]/Tous les messages  in a
reasonable time, because with  a lot of emails, Gnus in  imap can be too
slow. My solution is in this line: 

(setq gnus-newsgroup-maximum-articles 70000)

and it works. 

For  people who  are  reluctant to  use offlineimap  or  mbsync and  who
therefore prefer  Gnus over  mu4e ,  it makes almost  the same  job, via

I can share  of course all my  setup and I am also  curious of improving
