Update on deleting Gmail after 30 days
Authored by: mclbruce on Sep 06, '08 11:02:17AM

It looks like Google has changed some things, or maybe I missed a setting or two the first time around.

- I'm still using a filter on Gmail to move mail sent from my Gmail account to trash.

- For incoming mail a combination of two settings seems to be working.

1. In Gmail Settings: Forwarding and POP/IMAP: POP Download, you can specify the following - When messages are accessed with POP: delete Gmail's copy.

2. For checking Gmail POP mail from a phone, use the leave mail on server option in the phone's software. Gmail will respect this setting and not trash the mail you receive on the phone. It will be picked up the next time you check Gmail via POP from your computer.
