    Why did gmail create these labels? All of them are empty so can I just delete them? I use the gmail app and not the HTC one.

    Thanks

    It's usually other, non-gmail specific, programs that create those folders.

    The gmail app should know to use the proper ones, so yeah so ahead and delete them.

    Ah I see... so gmail must have created them when I was previously using the HTC mail app. Thanks for your help :)

    You can hide or remove these in settings on gmail but not sure if the option is there on the hero. I couldn't find it on there anyway

    gmail makes them on your gmail pc account through htc app, i actually found it very handy due to deleting a receipt i wished to keep and unfortunately got rid of it until i checked [imap]trash

    Is there any adverse effect to deleting these if you don't use the Gmail App? I currently use K9 to check my gmail.
