Google IMAP delete action does not move to trash

Hello, I’ve noticed lately that I have a lot of unread emails in All Mail in Gmail, but none in trash.
I dug deeper, and I noticed it’s all the emails I delete from my phone through K9.
My guess is that instead of moving the mail to the trash folder on Gmail, it just removes the inbox label.

Is there a way to fix this? Or report this as a bug?

I don’t have this problem with K9. I did delete a few from the app and they went into Gmail’s trash.

I have seen that as my mail service has a feature to fetch email, and when it does, the messages it pulls go to Gmail’s archive.

Are you using IMAP though? it may be due to the fact I’m in a Google Workspace, my personal Gmail don’t have IMAP enabled, I use pop3 on my computer every once in a while.

I use IMAP on all my accounts and when I delete an email on my phone it ends up in Trash where it belongs.

Maybe check your folders (hamburger menu, Manage Folders) to make sure they’re assigned properly?

Thanks, that was it, not the general folders but folders on that account. It did not have trash set up for some reason.
