It would be handy to be able to tag an IMAP folder as the "Archive folder", and then to have an archive action either in the pulley menu, or when swiping right a message.

edit retag flag offensive close delete



This is a must for all GMail accounts. While having a single e-mail open, the pulley menu should include option "Archive" which would move the message to the GMail "All messages" folder.

An option to configure the Archive folder would be OK, but by default and by minimum GMail use should work.

I think that there should be both options in menu - delate and archive. Probably it will be easier to implement then making this behaviour configurable. Also I think "archive" only (after changing delete behaviour) option would be annoying there are some mails that should be deleted immediately.

This would be really nice. It is used in some modern software (like Gmail client or Inbox) and is very useful for mobile use.

I would prefer Archive (in the meaning of "Mark as read" and "Move To" predefined folder) action to Delete action. Both, in pulley menu of single email and when working with selected emails.
