    Sorry if this is old news, but I just found it today

    Go to on your iPhone or iPad.
    Select which device you want to change the settings for.
    On the next page put a tick against Enable "Delete Email as Trash" for this device and save the settings.
    Now when you delete an email it is moved to your bin/trash instead of staying archived in All Mail.

    Again apologies if this is old news, but I though I would share it.

    Hopefully someone might find this useful

    Hi yes, sorry I realise you can do it without Exchange, but you get push notifications with Gmail setup via Exchange and I didn't like that it would only archive email before.
