I've tried every conceivable setting and nothing works.  When I deleted something in Mac Mail the email stays in the Gmail "All Mail" mailbox.  I do not want this behavior. 


On the iPad and iPhone it's not a problem since there is an option to trash and not archive.  But I can't get this to work with Mac Mail.  How can I get this done?


On the Gmail side I've configured "Forwarding & IMAP/POP"  "Move the message to the Trash " and "Immediately delete message forever" and neither of those worked.


On the Mac Mail side I've configured the Mailbox Behavior's "Trash" section in every possible way.


Mac Mail is the only client that is still keeping deleted items in "All Mail".
