Automatically delete emails from GMail

Discussion in 'Windows Live Mail' started by Gerson Levitz, Jul 11, 2007.

  1. I have configured my WLM to download my mail for my GMail account with the
    following advanced settings:


    Delivery --> Leave copy of message on server and Remove from server when
    deleted from 'Deleted Items'.

    The second option is not working, so even after I delete the emails and
    delete the Deleted Items the email are still on GMail.

    Thanks

    Have you checked the Gmail options themselves?

    On the Gmail web interface...

    Settings > Forwarding and POP > POP Download >

    2. When messages are accessed with POP >

    Choose the archive or delete option.

    Save changes.

  3. I want my cake and to it too.

    I want the e-mail only to be deleted from GMail when I delete the e-mail and
    remove it from the Deleted Items folder in WLM.

    But I guess this is not possible with GMail.

    I don't know, but I doubt WLM would inform Gmail
    of such housekeeping.

    I'm curious about your need to delete mail from Gmail.
    I've been using it for years and have used less than 10%
    of the archive.

    Having mail archived has saved me countless
    times where I've been hasty in deleting POP mail.

    Have you done a Send/Receive after deleting the Deleted Items? Only during
    this process messages are deleted on the server in case of POP3 accounts
    like GMail.
