I have been using Outlook 2007 to manage my GMAIL using IMAP. After doing this for almost a year I realize that my gmail account keeps growing in space used.
I have figured out that when I delete a message from my Inbox that it isn't actually deleted. It seems to just be removed from the inbox. Can anyone tell me how to actually delete from "inside" outlook?
I have already tried Edit -> Purge... It seems as though when you delete within outlook the communication it sends back to GMAIL is to just remove from the inbox and not delete. I want to at least make it move to a folder in which I can delete from on the GMAIL side. Now I just have a bunch of messages that are not in any GMAIL folder that I don't know what to do with.
I hope this makes sense. Thanks.
