    I recently switched my email to the offered through the new iCloud services from Gmail. I'm afraid this may have been a mistake, as I've recently run into a lot of problems, and it just doesn't seem to be as good as Gmail. For instance, on my iPhone before, under Gmail, there was a button to archive mail, but now it's just the trash can. I NEVER delete my emails, who knows if I will need it again (and I always do, ha ha). Does anyone know if there's a way to change that delete button to an archive button, so it goes to the iCloud Mail's Archive folder? For now, I've just been clicking the move message button and placing it manually in the Archive folder, but I really miss the way it was when I was using Gmail through Mail on the iPhone and could archive with a hit of a button.

    Any ideas? Thanks a lot!

    Settings - Mail, Calendar, Contacts - select iCloud account - select "Account" - Advanced Mail - Turn on Archive Messages

    This will bring the archive button back.
