Ok, few questions.

So i have my Gmail account setup in Mail.App using IMAP. I finally have a good understanding on what all the folders/labels are.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but when i delete a message from my Inbox, it just expunges it, right? Which removed it from all lables/folders, but it stays in All Mail?

Gmail's Mail.App recommendation settings are when you delete a message from your Inbox, it just goes to "On my Mac > Deleted Messages".
Does this also expunge the message?

How long does an expundged message stay in "All Mail"?

Is there a way that when i delete a message from my Inbox, it goes to [gmail]trash and also removed from all mail?
Then when i am ready i can just empty the [gmail]trash out and the messages are for ever gone.

Any help is SUPER appertained.

QUOTE Thanks

Another thing i'm not sure about is. What to set these Gmail settings to...

Quote:
Auto-Expunge:
* Immediately expunge messages when I mark them deleted in IMAP
* Do not automatically expunge messages

When a message is expunged from the last visible IMAP folder:
* Archive the message
* Move the message to the Trash
* Immediately delete the message forever
Its currently set to "Immediately expunge messages when I mark them deleted in IMAP". Which disabled the second setting.

QUOTE Thanks
