    I have the new Gmail 4.5 on my Droid Bionic version 4.1.2. I can't figure out how to delete emails. When I swipe, I only get the option to archive. Any help would be appreciated.

    Press the menu button and there will be a delete option. You can also set it up in setting to show the delete option instead of the archive option (or you can show both).

    Long press the email you want to delete. You'll see the garbage can icon appear at the top of the screen.

    You can also go to Gmail's Settings/General Settings, select "Archive & delete actions," and select "Show delete only." Then also make sure "Swipe to delete" is checked.

    Perfect. Thank you. Is there anyway to delete multiple emails at a time?

    Another question. Is there anyway to delete everything that is in Trash. I have 999+ in the Trash. I tried swiping to delete those but nothing happened. Thanks again.

    The only way I have to empty the trash is through web based gmail.

    After long-pressing the first email you want to delete, then just keep long-pressing other emails you also want to delete. You'll see the count increase at the top of the screen. Once you've selected all of the emails you want to delete, then tap the garbage can.

    Go to your Trash folder, then hit the menu button, and select "Empty Trash."

    I can't even find a menu button! I went to the app drawer and did 'Clear Data', that gave me back the menu.

    If your phone doesn't have a hardware menu button, then there should be a soft button somewhere on the screen. Look for an icon of 3 vertical dots. Post a screenshot if you still have problems.
