    The answer to the send mail as checkbox is about half way down this page:
    http://support.google.com/mobile/bin...&answer=138740

    Also, it sounds like delete might work as expected according to this:

    "When using Google Sync, certain actions in Gmail may have a different behavior than you're used to. For instance, if you "delete" a message from your Inbox, the default action is that it will archive the message and not delete it. To delete the message, you need to select Enable "Delete Email As Trash" for this device in your Google Sync settings. See our complete list of how actions taken on your device affect your Gmail interface."

    But then the complete list of actions suggests that it won't work...

    Going to try it out...

    Wow. This totally works. I have searched for this on and off maybe a half dozen times and never found this. Big thanks for posting it. This is so great!

    Only drawback as far as I can tell (hopefully no battery issues) is that drafts are not supported:
    "Editing email drafts is not supported by Google Sync for any device."

    From:

    Oh well.

    Cobra's link was a little confusing. The actual information is on that page, but difficult to find. Here it is:

    On your iOS device, go to m.google.com/sync.
    Select your device.

    Sweet! That's awesome! I had no idea how to change that. Thanks!

    Hey Guys,
    My delete Trash function is a bit squirrelly. Sometimes is works and sometimes it doesn't. Deletes them for about a few seconds then reloads the trash folder.

    Anyone else?
    TIA

    Hmm. That's a bummer. I didn't have that happen, but after all the excitement I went back to IMAP. I'm almost ashamed to say it! Exchange was quicker loading and checking, but it didn't always push very fast. Sometimes it would take ten minutes for a message to arrive, at which point I may as well just go back to IMAP. With IMAP my whole inbox loads (not just the last 30 days -- yeah I know, got some old messages in there). And IMAP syncs drafts.

    This may not be that helpful, but even though the notifications for push on the gmail app don't work, the app badge status changes when a new message comes in. So I have the gmail app with app badge to tell me if there's a new message. Pretty lame, but at least I know it shows current new message numbers without having to open the app.
