Mail doesn't let me sync just my inbox from Gmail.

I'm trying to set up my Mail with my Gmail account but I have way too many messages on it.
What I would like to do is to sync only what is in my inbox now (I've archived everything older than a month) and I can't seem to get around it. It always ends up trying to sync messages from the "All Mail" folder. I've tried preferences but nothing of the sort.
I'm using a MBP 13" running 10.6.4
Help is appreciated.

GMail is a POP or IMAP system

That worked out right.
I just oversaw the setting "enable pop for mail that arrives from now on".
Thanks a lot.
