    You're right, I don't see any option for that either, although I rarely have need or interest in doing it, as the trash items will be deleted by Gmail automatically in 30 days, anyway.

    That's one of the features I like best about Gmail - the fact that when I delete an email from my Inbox, it remains available in Trash for a while, just in case I mistakenly deleted it.

    Go to your Gmail account on your pc, open the trash folder, either click on all the boxes one at a time or check the "all" button at the top, click the delete button. Gone.

    This should work on the X as well. Menu > folders > trash > menu > select all (or check those you want gone) > delete.

    I have Gmail "fetch" my pop 3 email accounts and deliver them to my X. Perhaps you would need to delete in each account, if you have them separated on the X.

    An issue for Google, not for the DX, it seems to me. This might be better placed in the Android App discussion area.

    As I mentioned earlier, I rarely, if ever, delete from Trash, since Gmail deletes automatically after 30 days anyway, so for my purposes it really isn't an issue at all.

    Same issue here...good to know that gmail empties the trash every 30 days. It would be nice though to have the option to do it yourself from the phone if you wanted to do it yourself .

    I don't know if this is a Droid X/FroYo thing or not but I noticed I still have this ability on my Fascinate running 2.1.

    If you are using the Gmail icon/app to get your email (including fetched Pop 3 accounts), there IS a trash folder on your X under menu>Go to Labels. Took me a while to realize "Labels" meant the various email folders, the same as on your computer's Gmail - whatever you set up. You can do the same things in the Label folders as on the Gmail/computer and it will sync right away.

    I gradually eliminated all other methods of getting email, including on my computer. Have only Gmail, although I continue to use my Pop3 accounts via fetch. My calendar also via Gmail. Has simplified things tremendously. Very efficient, too.

    Note that it's important (but not critical) to use the X's Gmail app/icon for the Gmail account. The others work OK, but duplicate what the Gmail does and you may even hear double notification sounds for incoming email from using the regular "email" and "messaging" icons/apps.
