Anyway to delete Gmail single messages but not whole conversation?

    I can't wait for M$ to pull the trigger on hotmail activesync. Currently I am using gmail. If I want to delete a message it sends the entire "conversation" to trash.

    Is there a way to delete single messages in a conversation? Sometimes I just want to keep the original, most important email but don't need all the replies that go back and forth.

    Currently I go into gmail web version to delete single messages in a thread but that's a PITA.

    Thanks for advice.

    while in conversation at the top of gmail it will say "3 read messeges" at the top of the conversation click on that and it break it down into the the different conversations touch the one you want deleted press delete

    It deletes the whole conversation, not just the broken down one I select. When I go into trash, I see the whole conversation with the "3 read messages" at the top, not just the one I wanted to delete.

    Is it perhaps a setting? Maybe I am missing something.

    I tried turning off the batch operation, no go, I think that's to select multiple conversations/threads not individual emails/messages. I too would love to know how to do delete individual email/message from the thread/conversation in the GMail App on FroYo, I am using 2.3.2

    How about turn "conversation" mode off on your PC. I did that, and I only get latest message on phone. But I use K9 to pull Gmail messages, so I'm not sure if the same holds true on mobile Gmail.
