I have an iPhone SE.  I have my iCloud email and a gmail account in the Mail program.  When I open an email in the gmail account there is an archive button.  But when I open an email in my iCloud account there is a trash button.  How can I get the archive button to display on my iCloud like it does on my gmail account?  I know how to get to the archive button in the iCloud account, but I wanted to know if these buttons are customizable.

eg

iCloud

I do not think there is any such button. I look on my iPhone SE and look in Mail Settings and there is no archive function. That is a server (or Outlook Client) responsibility.

I know if you tap this folder an archive option appears.  I use this, but it would be nice if the archive button could replace the trash icon.

That must be part of your mail system. That button does not appear for my mail vendor. So it must be a function of the host system where the web mail is (and can be archived).

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I got thinking more about this and I think (for sure) the Apple iPhone email tool is a shell that has parts an email vendor can use. So my simple Squirrel Mail system does not use any parts, but your host system does. It would be up to them to provide proper icons.

What types of mail accounts? IMAP or POP?

@John, I am leaning towards what you are saying.

@Jackie, IMAP: iCloud, gmail, gmail, gmail (work)

All three gmail accounts have an archive button as one of the initial tools.

eg

archiveButtonGmail

I have spent time looking at email (two different apps: Apple and Mail.com), websites (my bank, EE, and others), and these icons we see / you show are coming from the web site implementations and not embedded as an Apple feature.

You are very welcome and I was pleased to help you out. I use my iPhone SE a lot and have explored many of its features including Touch ID for banking and other uses.
