    Is that via IMAP or Exchange?

    And what happened to Contacts?

    It's whatever the setup wizard created. Don't think it's Exchange because I sent an e-mail and didn't receive it right away. There is no option for Contacts.

    Yes.

    It's pretty annoying that I can't swipe to delete now. The only option is archive. If I want to move an item to the trash then I have to open the message, tap the folder icon, then select the trash.

    They should have done, swipe one way to delete, swipe the other way for archive.

    Wow, awesome to see them add more features for gmail connectivity. I wonder if notes syncs to google tasks?

    Would also be nice if they added imap_idle for gmail push.

    Btw... Doesn't gmail use 'archive' as their delete?

    Gmail has both archive and delete. I thought that as well and I had to check to be sure.

    yeah, thats right. initially they just treated it all as archive but now you can really delete.

    still surprised theyve added this kind of functionality. its not close to android (obviously) but never really expected it to change.

    Has anyone found a way to revert to the original Delete function?

    The original Delete function also just Archived the mail. They just fixed the wording.

    Then I must have had something "incorrectly" set because mine actually deleted. It archived with Gmail via Google Sync/Exchange, but the default Gmail settings actually deleted.

    This is incorrect.

    I have Gmail set up via the auto setup (Pressing Gmail instead of Other when setting up).

    When I press the trash can, or swipe and delete, it does not archive my emails.

    They go in the trash as they should.

    I'm set up through Exchange, and e-mails I delete on my phone are definitely still visible under 'All Mail' on my desktop. Don't know what to tell you.

    Separate development teams must have worked on the native Gmail implementation and the Exchange Gmail implementation. The two teams must have interpreted 'delete' differently. My best guess. Or there is some restriction with the Exchange server.

    Unless Apple changed Gmail's default behavior, Gmail's IMAP implementation is set to treat delete as archive unless a message is explicitly moved to the trash. Didn't Apple update the guided gmail setup recently to use IMAP instead of POP? Otherwise the workaround I made before switching to the exchange version was change my Deleted folder to "All Mail" in the settings for that account.

    Is there a way to receive a notification of a new message? A pop up message like you get with push apps now perhaps?

    Yes.

    Through Exchange, they go to All Mail.

    But the we are talking about IMAP in this thread though. ;)

    So it appears they have now changed IMAP to be like Exchange, where if you delete an email, it gets Archived instead of deleted.

    The pictures in OP are for OS 4, coming out this summer. It's beta version is available to the developers, which I assume the OP is a part of.

    I was able to fix this. Definitely for me IMAP delete used to be a proper delete. The emails would go to the trash. It was really annoying to find that they were being archived in 4.0. But there's a fix: just set up Gmail through the "other" email option, like Gmail suggested we do back in the day when the auto Gmail setup wasn't that good. This allows you to set things more preciously and I'm back to deleting properly.
