Quickly archive and/or delete Gmail messages in Mail.app
Authored by: atonaldenim on Jan 26, '10 10:37:05AM

Delete key = archive ... this is correct.

Mark as junk = delete ... I wouldn't do this. It does seem like it would mislead the intelligent spam filters by training them badly.

I don't know if this is the "stock" configuration, but my Mail.app <-> Google Apps account has a "Trash" folder. When I log into Google Apps Gmail via the web, opening the Trash folder displays the option "Empty Trash now" and says "(messages that have been in Trash more than 30 days will be automatically deleted)"

Thus it seems to actually delete from Mail.app I would just move a message into the Trash folder, and expect it will be gone in 30 days, or log in to Gmail and manually empty the trash.

But... does anybody really delete anymore? :)
