Don't delete mail in GMail when deleting mail with Outlook

I have started using Outlook as an IMAP client for GMail. Until now, I never delete email in GMail (using the web interface)... I always hit "Archive" which simply removes the mail from the GMail Inbox, but leaves it in the "All Mail" folder of GMail.

Take a look at the Google documentation here for tips on setting up folders to handle deletion properly. The default behaviour for Outlook does what you want, though the iPhone will require different actions to do what you want (which are also outlined in the link).

"Another option is to change your behavior. I use Gmail, and sometimes I want to delete a message, sometimes I want to archive it.

No matter how your device or client is set up, moving a message to ""All Mail"" will archive it."
