    Hello all,

    This might sound like a stupid question but when I hit the back space / delete key on a blue highlighted email in mac mail it deletes. Okay, so I get that...but where does it go?

    This happened with a gmail account of mine and I am trying to work out where the email has gone...it's not in the trash folder, it's not in the junk folder, it's in no folder in mac mail on my mac other than the "all mail" folder.

    I did this in error and would like to know the fate of the email.

    Where do they go?:)

    They should be in Mail's Trashcan or under the GMail Trashcan.

    Or under an imap 'deleted' folder depending on how your email server is set up.

    If you left the gmail.com settings at their default, deleted messages go to the Archive folder.
