iPhone OS 4.0 Gmail odd archive only issue?
I noticed that with the new OS 4.0 Gmail doesn't automatically delete an e-mail when you simply swipe from your inbox. It actually archives the email into the "All Mail" section. There IS an option that lets you turn off the Archive function so that when you swipe the email it says DELETE instead of ARCHIVE.
However even with the archive function switched off in the mail account settings of the iPhone. E-mails that I swipe delete still get archived and I need to actually go into ALL MAIL to delete them again.
Anyone else know if this is normal or an actual issue Apple is looking at?

Are you talking about Gmail via the web app, or using Gmail in the native mail app? I use it via Exchange, and the only relevant option I have under Settings is "Ask Before Deleting"--no option to Archive or not.
If I go into the web app, I see the Archive label when swiping, but can't find the Settings dialog. At any rate, yes, this is now the default Gmail behavior under iOS 4.

This isn't new to iOS 4. I have had this issue since 3.0 I haven't figurred out why it does this, but my workaround is this.
*Go to gmail on your desktop and create a 'To Delete' foler/label
On your iPhone, simply move messages you want to delete to that folder, and delete them later on your desktop/web browser. It kinda sucks that this is what I have to do but I found it much more annoying to have to go through the 'All Mail' label and find the messages that were meant for the trash.
