Windows 7: Permanently delete email from gmail with outlook 2010

Permanently delete email from gmail with outlook 2010

Hi there
I've got a GMAIL account which I access via OUTLOOK 2010 (IMAP)

I've googled for this but the solution doesn't work --there's there's no TRASH folder under GMAIL.

How though do you delete PERMANENTLY Email -- If you delete it from the BIN folder it goes to Deleted folder -- if you empty this folder and then click on the gmail all mail folder it all re-appears again.

I've got something like 4500 mails now that I can't seem to get rid of -- if I have to do this via gmail itself then it rather makes the whole point of using OUTLOOK pointless in the first place. The only reason I opened a GMAIL account was because of its integration with OUTLOOK.

Deleting emails goes to the delete folder - now if I empty that the mail is seen again in the ALL mail folder - deleting that goes to the BIn folder and deleting that goes back again to the delete folder -- endless roundabout.

How to Delete Emails from Gmail IMAP Access Mail Client « My Digital Life

In Outlook 2010 and some email, you can set Outlook to automatically move the deleted items to [Gmail]/Trash folder on the server. To do so, go to the “Account Settings” of the Gmail account, and change its account settings. At “More Settings”, go to “Deleted Items” tab, and select “Move deleted items to the following server on the server”, and select the “[Gmail]/Trash” folder in the tree list.

An email message in Outlook can appear in many folders (applied with many labels). Typically, once you delete the email and move it to Trash, the email should be removed from other folders by Gmail too. Perform a sync or Send/Receive All Folders (for Outlook) so that mail client can synchronize the change that takes place on Gmail cloud after deletion. If for some reason Gmail and mail client does not automatically remove to Trash a delete email from all folders (labels), and the supposedly deleted emails on folders other than Trash folder, then manual deletion from each and every folders is requires. This including from [Gmail]/All Mail folder which archived all mails.
Once the e-mails are moved to Trash folder, it will be automatically purged by Google server process after 30 days. You can also configure your mail client to process purge permanently items mark as trashed or deleted in the original folder automatically from the server. Note that also if you delete any email message from [Gmail]/Spam or [Gmail]/Trash, it will be deleted permanently, locally and on Gmail server.
