    Has anyone else had issues with Gmail not deleting emails on the server when you attempt to do so on your phone?

    Not me. Are you deleting with a swipe?

    I get too many emails to do that. But in the past when I have, they still do not delete on my desktop

    The only way I see that happening is if you are using G-Mail with a mail client on the desktop, set as POP rather than IMAP. The best way to delete mail from the newest G-Mail app is with a (very quick) swipe.

    I have noticed that if I delete emails in gmail and then go to the web version of gmail, those emails are still there. If you hit refresh, a lot of times it'll recognize it right away, but generally it'll take 5 minutes to be done automatically.

    Good point, it will take a minute or 3 to refresh and sync but I don't think that's the problem.

    I think I figured out the problem. I turned off email sync awhile back because of how often it was keeping my phone awake. I guess I assumed that when I refreshed Gmail on my phone, it would refresh on the server that I had deleted the emails. We will find out this evening when I am back on my computer. For the time being, I just turned off notifications

    If that's working good, but my auto sync of the G-Mail is off and it still syncs the deletions when I refresh. Something else is not quite 100%

    I haven't taken a look at Gmail on my computer in a couple days, so I'm not positive it is working. I keep forgetting to log in when I'm at home lol
