Android Gmail app cant delete mail in Trash/Recycle bin
Using Android Honeycomb 3.0
use Gmail app > sign in > Delete any email from Inbox > go to Trash > there is no option to delete the deleted email.
This is a known limitation. There are a couple of ways around it depending on what you seek to achieve:
1. Logon from your browser and select delete forever from the web app.
2. Don’t sync the Deleted items label
I’ve chosen the second option but on the other hand I very rarely delete and is not that affected by this curious lack of feature.
Thing is that thrashed mails should be deleted after 30 days, and since I selected to only sync 4 days worth of garbage it should only be present in the cloud for 26 of those days.
To sum it
up, the thrash function is flawed. If it’s a viable option for you, you can
chose not to sync that label and messages that you delete from thrash will not
show up again on your phone.
See Eth@n from Google comment on it in the referenced thread, looks like we can hope for the future :)
