    Where would you expect to find deleted email? If you delete it, isn't it "gone"? (not trying to be flippant, really don't understand the issue/problem.)

    in the mail app on my mac I can view deleted emails, why would the phone be any different ?

    Sometimes I delete a email by mistake, the delete icon is right next to the file icon.

    Doesnt it seem normal to be able to access deleted emails ?

    seems simple to me.

    So you are saying if I delete a email it is completely gone forever ??

    Look in your trash folder. That's where they like to hide. Just like on your mac. The navigation button is on the top left. Go out to the folder tree. Then select the proper account, should unfold and show you the trash folder.

    On the iPhone's mail program, you've got the main screen with mailboxes, and at the bottom, accounts. Click on the accounts selection for your gmail, and you'll find a folder view like on a computer. Anything you deleted will be in the trash folder unless you've emptied it, or in the all mail folder and you can move it to your in box again.

    If you are using gmail as exchange, your deleted emails don't really delete. They are moved to the all mail folder. I've made a folder called iPhone trash and I move the trash to it on the phone then empty that folder.

    I had this same issue cpc12, what I figured out was all my email accounts were actually seperated as well as joined, so the gmail ones were archived, not really deleted, until I went into the seperate gmail account and physically deleted them.

    You can check your trash folder through your iPhone.

    You can find it in the "all mail" folder.

    You can delete it from this folder.

    You can found the deleted image in Trash for 30 days but after 30 days it permanently go and there is no way to recover them again.
