I configured my Gmail account as an Exchange account on my iPhone 5's Mail app in order to use push rather than fetch. Two problems: 1. There are too many unnecessary folders ([Gmail], etc) and I can't get rid of them, so the screen is unpleasantly cluttered with useless rubbish. 2. When I delete an email it's archived. I've been searching for solutions for hours now. Both issues have been raised before - I couldn't find a solution for no.1, and no.2 is supposedly resolved, though this doesn't work for me (when I go m.google.com/sync on my phone's Safari browser I do not get the options others seem to - there's no way to select my iPhone, and no box to tick/untick relating to deleting/archiving). I would be very grateful if someone could help me out here, as this is driving me mad!
