    One of the little features I really liked with the email app is that I could swipe an email entry and delete it, since OS4 when I swipe an email entry it gives the option to archive not delete. Is there any way of getting the delete option back ??

    This is for a Gmail account, isn't it? I've noticed the same thing, but my Gmail accounts are not nearly full enough for this to be a problem for me. I have a couple of POP accounts and a Lotus Notes one for work, and they continue to delete, not archive.

    However, there is a switch in Settings for Mail for the Gmail accounts that toggles between having archive messages On or Off. That should do the trick for you.
