    OK, so I have noticed that on IOS4.0 that every email I have in my gmail account shows up in my inbox and in my gmail -> All mail folder also. this happens for sent, deleted, and received. So if I delete something I have to delete it everywhere? All I want is just the one inbox and everything there and if I delete something I want it deleted. Do I not have something set up right? Please help. Thanks.

    You have one inbox. All mail is just that, all your
    mail, including inbox items, sent and deleted. All
    you have to worry about is what is in your inbox.

    There is no issue here. You're just looking for
    mail in the wrong spot.

    Not correct. when I open my mail app. I see from top to bottom: inbox, drafts, sent mail, trash, GMAIL, all mail, spam, starred, gmail trash, personal, receipts, travel, work.

    If I sent an email it shows up in the 3rd one which is sent items and it also shows up in the gmail folder that says all mail. Why is it keeping it in all mail and everything going in there?

    Correct! Because outgoing is part of "all".
    Everything you do in mail, whether it's coming
    in, going out, drafting, or whatever is ALL!

    You should be worried about the label that
    says "Inbox"

    The one I highlighted/circled is what you
    should be worried about.



    If this has "all" your mail, then you have a
    problem.

    This is b/c GMail uses labels to as fake folders. Everything goes into the "all mail" folder and then is also filed under labels. If you delete something from your inbox it should get deleted from your "All Mail" as well, once the server actually deletes the mail ( which could be a while ).
