i turned off conversation mode on the PC side. shortly thereafter - i noticed an email i deleted on the PC side would not delete on my EVO. not sure if it's related but i went back and turned conversation mode back on and now everything is working fine again. i plan to just suck it up and get used to conversation mode to keep things consistent with Gmail on PC and Android.

Turning off conversation mode speaks to a basic misunderstanding on how Gmail works, and generally messes up a lot of things.
With mailing lists its a nightmare having it turned off. Even with regular family and friends it makes no sense to have to hunt around for a prior message just to find out what they told you previously. So much quoting could be avoided if people would just use gmail as intended.
Archive, never delete.

Honestly, there is a ton of crap, alerts if you will, that I'm very content to delete. You tube subscription notifications for example.
So, would someone be so kind to tell me how it might be possible to delete a SINGLE message in a conversation, instead of the whole conversation in the gmail app?

Simply prefer the traditional view.
Even if I'm forced to go conversation mode on the device, I'd at least like the ability to delete a single item in the conversation.Treo 650 > HTC Mogul > HTC Touch Diamond > BB Curve > Palm PRE- > HTC Evo / BB Bold > Nexus S 4G

Just because Google designed it that was doesn't mean that's how most people prefer it. Every other email service on the face of the planet sorts email by date and lists them individually. While grouping by conversations is a nice to have feature, it shouldn't be the default setting, IMO. Since it is the default setting, being able to turn it off and make it work like all other email interfaces would be nice. As mentioned the option is available for the web mail interface. So, why is it not available on my phone? Shouldn't an email app provide you with your emails in whatever format/view you prefer???-Stay thirsty my friends.

It's the only rational way to deal with lots of mail.
You are arguing against dresser drawers and closets, and championing a heap of clothing in the corner of your bedroom floor.

Didn't even know it was an option on the PC side.
6 months ago, I would have jumped at this. Now, more or less, I am fine with the way Google groups the emails. K9 was an option, but I actually switched back because I had grown to prefer conversation mode.
I am sure the functionality will be added to the mobile end shortly
