I've connected my Google Account to Sailfish OS and turned on push notifications.

I regularly receive new mails. It works well. After I read them, they are marked as readed. It works well too. But when I try to delete any mail, it is moved out Inbox folder, but in the web interface I see it with other mails. Therefore I cannot delete any mail with phone.

Did you check if the deleted mails are in trash folder?

You should have a look in trash folder, in my case the mails are just moved on the phones userinterface to trash folder... If you delete 'em there, they will disappear ob web interface.

The trash folder is always empty for gmail account (I use IMAP). Maybe it was a bug or there is any delay between deleting mails on phone and server, because now I cannot repeat this problem.
