    Been digging thru the GMail settings and for the life of me I just dont see it. How can I stop GMail from syncing trash?

    From my PC I created a complex filter to obliterate spam messages and move them to the trash (20+ emails a day).

    On my Note 10, the GMail app insists on syncing the trash. Thank god Im not getting notifications

    But still, as a data-mizer I would love for the app to not sync and download trash/deleted messages.

    If this is possible to disable what did I overlook?

    Are you using the Gmail app, or the stock Email app?

    GMail... Its hard to believe you can pick and choose every label and folder to sync, except spam and trash.

    Sorry, I'm not aware of a way to turn off that sync. Are you concerned about how much data it takes to sync that? I'd guess it's still pretty minimal.

    Thanks for your replies. Yeah the data was my concern. I have one of those unlimited plans that throttles speed after so many GB's. So Im trying to save what ever I can.

    Im going to experiment with a work around. Im going to try not syncing "All mail" and only sync Important, Starred etc. That may keep the spam and trash from being synced.

    I wish I could say that it worked. Even with all labels turned off and "All mail" Trash and Spam were the only things that synced rotfl I would love for someone at Google to explain the why.
