    I searched, but came up empty. Quick question. When you delete an eMail on the Pre in the Gmail mailbox, does it delete it on the Gmail server, or archive it on the Gmail server?

    TIA

    It sends it to the trash folder in Gmail.

    You can configure it to Archive if you want to.

    If you go into your preferences for email, pull up your gmail account, and set your default trash folder as (gmail)/allmail you will send your mail to the archive folder (the all mail folder) and not the trash folder. I think if you let it be sent to the trash folder gmail will remove it after 30 days. If you let it be sent to the all mail folder it becomes archived forever (until you run out of space anyway)

    Just saw this article describing the same procedure as above, but nice and graphically.

    Yeah, that archive 'hack' will do for now. Hopefully down the road a bit the Pre will have better gmail support. A real 'Delete', 'Archive', 'Mark as Spam' set of features.
