Deleting from Gmail: how to delete instead of archive | iOS 11 Guide

If you’re using a Gmail account in Mail, by default it archives rather than deletes your email.


If you’d prefer to always delete messages, you can disable archiving from Settings then Mail. Tap Accounts followed by your Gmail account name, then again from the next view, followed by Advanced. Find the Move Discarded Message Into section and select Deleted Mailbox.
