    iPhone 4, I have my gmail synced to my mail.

    Looks like there's 2 ways to clear an e-mail in your inbox.

    1) If I go into the actual e-mail to read it, I can hit the garbage can and it'll "delete"
    2) If I swipe the arrow in the inbox, the red "Archive" button appears.

    Here's my question, if I go into the actual e-mail and hit the garbage button to delete, does this go into my Gmail archives or does it permanantly delete the e-mail?

    I'm wondering the same thing as the OP. When I hit the trash icon, it removes it from my inbox but it doesn't move it to gmail's trash. I can't find an Archive folder, but the file is in the All Mail folder.

    How do I get it to go straight in the Trash folder?
