I'm using a gmail account.  Where does email go when you click archive?

    Into your "All Mail" folder.


    If you want to actually delete mail from your Inbox, there is a switch in Settings where you can change the behavior between Delete and Archive.  However, if you set your GMail account up as an Exchange account, this toggle does not exist on your device, you have to go to on your device to change this behavior.

    It should be similar behavior for all accounts with this option.
