I've been patiently waiting for the day when Gmail would introduce a rather common-sense feature - a Delete Button. Prior to the arrival of this button today, deleting mail in Gmail was cumbersome.

This makes it so much easier. So thanks Gmail Team.

For my next wish - a simple way to delete ALL mail in the trash bin. Right now, you have to wade through it one screen at a time. Be nice to have a "empty trash" button too.

Nice touch.

Now if I could just remember that it's there.

It will take a day or two.

I must say that despite yearning for a delete button (and a delete function for that matter) in the beginning, I've just "let go" and gone with the Gmail flow. (Rhymes and all!) I archive almost everything (even cheesy jokes/forwards and newsletters that I know I'll likely never read again). I've left my hierarchical folder habit well and truly behind me and I don't miss it. I used to delete all the time with other email clients to "tidy up" and make important stuff easy to find. No need for that with gmail's labels, stars and search. Now I only delete when I positively want to destroy an email.
