    This is my first android phone (note 3 AT&T) and so far I like it, I have ran into a problem that I can not figure out the solution to.

    - my gmail emails will not stay deleted when I delete them from my phone.
    - sync email is checked
    - "set sync schedule" is set to automatic (push)

    Anytime I get a new email, all the previous emails return to my phone inbox, and i'll have a badge that reads 23 and counting. I delete them all, then a new email arrives and now I have 24 emails in my inbox. It appears the phone is not syncing with my gmail inbox and actually deleting them from actual gmail inbox.

    Any help with this issue is greatly appreciated.

    thank you in advance.

    btw this is my second post, I have been lurking here while learning my away around this being my first android and have found all my answers thus far! This is a great place to be.

    Try logging in to gmail on a desktop computer & explore all your settings from there.

    Are you using the gmail app, or an email app with pop3 out IMAP?

    Thanks for the welcome. I solved the issue by Un installing gmail and re installing/seeing it up with the same settings I had above. Something somewhere along the line got fubar'd. But this solved the issue!
