Looking at my sync settings on a GMail account, I see under the [Gmail] folders it has "Chats" listed. Looking at what it has in the folder (I set it to sync locally) all I see is a long list of messages from chatsupport@bot.talk.google.com, all dated from 2013 (plus one message from an old 10 year old work google account). Checking the GMail website, I see a number of Chat messages from 2020 and 2021 but none of those Google bot messages from 2013. Is this item supposed to be syncing down the messages I have on my GMail account? If not, what are these messages. I even tried closing Thunderbird and removing the Chats and Chats.msf files, but the next sync just brought the chatsupport messages back down.

It's not really a big issue if it doesn't actually sync them (it could be handy, but not critical). However, if it IS supposed to work I would put in a BZ for it. Otherwise I'll just uncheck it and ignore it.

I think your older message will be from google chat. The newer from google hangouts which is not synced anywhere. But I am largely guessing.
