The new Gmail App
has been released on iOS
a couple of days ago and while going through the settings I noticed that deleted messages were set to Archive
instead of being Moved to bin
i.e. deleted. I think this is a bit undesirable, pressing delete should delete the message, so here's how to make sure it does!
First you need to show the side menu by tapping the three horizontal bars
button at the top left. Scroll all the way down until you get to Settings
On the next screen tap your account.
In the General
settings tap on 'When removing messages, I prefer to...'
Finally tap 'Move to bin'
and you're done.
Your deleted emails will no longer be archived.
