    Per title, how to delete email without opening it? IOS6 I just need to slide & delete button came up. IOS7 nothing. I don't want to open email just to delete it.

    Slide your finger on the message and tap 'Trash'.

    Slide the opposite direction and you get both "More", which is really nice, and "Trash".

    Thanks guys, didn't notice that I have to slide to the other direction. What's wrong with sliding left to right apple? :mad:

    Because that now initiates the go-back to previous page swipe.

    That takes you back to the previous page.

    You'll get used to it.

    When I swipe right to left, I get "More" and "Archive". Where is the "Trash" option?

    Swipe left makes more sense to me since you are revealing a button on the right.

    You can't delete emails from Gmail. You can only archive them.

    Depends on the email service. Gmail will archive i believe.

    If I may show my ignorance one more time, if you "archive" a Gmail e-mail, where does it go? Archive doesn't mean "delete" does it?

    Thanks!

    Yes you can. Settings, Mail Contacts Calendars, click on Gmail account, Click on account, click on advanced and you have the option to delete or archive :)

    I can't find where or how to limit the messages you can store, ios6 you could select 25,50,100 or 200. On ios7 all 14.892 messages are shown.
    Has anyone figured this one out.
