    In my gmail messages, I open a message and the middle button of the 5, there is something that looks like "an arrow pointing down into a drawer."

    It's pretty amazing how you can just tap things to find out what they do.

    Yup, it sure is because I did that and the message just disappeared so I didn't know what the button exactly did. Thanks.

    Huh?

    What folder does it move it to? I accidentally hit it I can't find the message now. What a dumb feature! How did this one slip by Steve jobs? Someone probably warned him over email but he accidentally tapped the middle button and it disappeared into thin air like my mail keeps doing

    Pricks

    Entertaining, cuz I know a thing or 2 about electronics, computers, smart phones, and iPhones specifically, but I didn't know this. Why do tech nerds have be such pricks about these things? Could you not have just answered the question instead of acting like an annoying little prick? Maybe this is why people didn't want to hang out with you in highschool?

    GMail is all about the archiving. They basically want you to find emails by searching. Once you act on an email you click that arrow to get it out of your inbox.
