    However, GMAIL auto deletes trash after 30 days and I do not see a way to change the time frame or eliminate it.

    Yeah trash is a 30 day limit. To me that's fine because why would I need something in trash 30 days later if I put it in the trash?

    I don't disagree but that does not seem to be the functionality desired by the original poster.

    I agree if 30 days is a deal breaker then Gmail wouldn't work at all anyway because even when using a 3rd party app if it puts it into "Trash" the Gmail server will delete it regardless if you use the Gmail app or not.

    That isn't an app thing more so a Google side thing hence you seeing that same disclaimer on desktop. Therefore he would need to disregard Gmail/Google entirely and go elsewhere or just not put stuff in trash that you don't truly want to trash. One of the two.

    Right. Simple fix? Just swipe everything into Archive. It disappears from the Inbox and stays *forever* in the Archive unless you go there and clean it out.

    Definitely another good suggestion. I move stuff into folders (have my Gmail completely organized between life/health/bought stuff/etc.) and just keep stuff that I truly think I may need one day since most emails are very minor on storage.

    Good suggestion though because I forgot about the archive function.

    That's probably the free version
    That's correct. The Pro version is what I use, and there are no ads.

    BlackBerry Hub for me. Lots of features, familiar interface from my BlackBerry days and I try to avoid Gmail. Google has enough info on me.

    Consider Aquamail. It is amazingly customizable and just works.

    I use GMail for personal stuff, and Inbox by VMWare (Airwatch, forced on me by my employer ) for work.
    It looks like you don't much like AirWatch. Why? And why does your employer force it on you?

    I like deleting emails I know I will not want to keep.
    But there are some I'd like to keep in the deleted folder longer.
    But not in my in box.
    On empty trash in deleted folder, it gets rid of everything.
    Why would you put things you want to keep in your trash? If you want it out of your way put it somewhere else. It's really like putting paper files in the recycling at work and then getting huffy that they actually took the stuff in the recycling bin away.

    On Samsung mail program.
    I could put stuff in trash and delete only what I wanted to delete.
    And leave what I wanted to leave , in case be I might want it a week or two later.
    Gmail don't give you that option.
    So I got rid of it.
    Not a good idea to try and force nothing on me .
    I won't have things forced on me.

    Are you using the Gmail service? Because if you are, then it's happening anyway.

    So. I currently use an XS Max and have used iPhones for years. Every once in awhile I get the Android itch. So I just ordered a Pixel 3 XL from google with the $200 off.

    But one thing that irkes me on Android is that I haven’t found an emai app that’s very similar to the mail all in iOS. I have my outlook.com email set up as Exchange, and I like the minimalist view of iOS mail. I don’t like the MS Outlook app, and I don’t like the gmail app. I remember on Samsung and older android phones, they had a basic email program that I liked, but it is not supplied any more.

    Anyone have a suggestion for an email app that’s really close to the iOS app that does exchange?

    The OP could just create a label in Gmail and call it Trash or whatever. Just label it and Archive and then you can pull it up any time you want. Personally, I just Archive and skip the labels since Google's search functionality is so good. Removes the stuff from the Inbox but allows you to find and use it later if needed. You can even set up a Filter to automatically Archive stuff if you want to.

    I use Newton and sometimes the BB hub

    The hub is great but there are still some Gremlins with deleting mail off the server , it also feels just a hair slower than other apps.

    Newton is great, super quick, sips battery and just works. Just lacks a dark mode.

    Consider Clean Email. It helps to organise my mailbox perfectly and doesn’t violate privacy there. https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....android&hl=ru
