    If you go to the "trash" folder, and hit the options key, it should give you the option to put that message back in the inbox.

    To permanently remove an email from the device, touch the check box to the left of the message, and the option to delete will pop up. Deleting something from the trash folder will erase it.

    When in gmail just go into menu and settings. There will be an option to confirm delete.

    gmail options vs. "other" email account options

    The gmail settings has an option to confirm delete, but for any other email account, that option does not exist. Also, there is currently no way (that I know of) to move a message from Trash to another folder (like the inbox) except to forward it from the Trash folder to your email address. And, by doing that, you lose the "real" from header in your inbox. Both of these are things that I WOULD LOVE to have the Motorola folks resolve. Very frustrating to delete an email by mistake and have no proper way of fixing the mistake. You should have the option of confirming deletions at the least.

    trash folder

    not only do i not have that option (where does that exist?), but in addition, when i delete all msgs in trash, then go back to view all folders, i still see the number "1" that indicates a msg still in trash?????
