Why does mail archive my gmail emails? I did not ask for it and I can't stop it.
go to the settings for that mail account and change it from archive to delete
It's not archiving them. Gmail is. Mail is just finally showing you what Google has been doing all along.
Go to the Gmail web site and look at the All Mail label. You will see all of the email you thought you had deleted.
I can't find a setting that has anything to do with archiving.

You have to do it in Gmail. In Settings, under Forwarding and POP/IMAP, set these:
That way, when you delete an email in Mail, Gmail will not leave it in All Mail.
I don't have the Mavericks version in front of me ... but try within Mail going to Preferences, Accounts, and looking within the various tabs there.
Yes they are there, but how do I stop them showing up in mail?
Ah, this may be the piece that I was missing yesterday ... but you may still have to update the settings in Mail.
I think you have to do BOTH of what Barney and I are recommending.
go to your web-based gmail and update the settings as Barney explained. Then go into Mail Preferences on your Mac and switch it from archive to trash for delete
In my version of gmail it says
"Move the message to the Bin" which I assume means Trash.
Thanks I'll give it a try

Go into Gmail Settings, Labels, uncheck the box to show All Mail in IMAP.
Please help!! I found this, however-- I found "move message to trash" but it is greyed out, and I cannot click on it. thanks in advance...Carol
