I have not used automated filters in Gmail, but in my Gmail:


1. If I Move a message to a folder, it is removed from my In Box


2. It is not removed from All Mail.


Those are two different folders.


3. If I Delete a message, it is in Trash and not in any other folder.

HTH,
Jim Shaeffer

Craig Cardimon asked for Help with Gmail Filters
I have configured a bunch of Gmail filters, but they don't function quite
as anticipated. The filters direct email to the folders I have specified, but
they leave a copy in my Inbox. When I delete the copy from my Inbox, the the
copy that is in the designated folder also vanishes.

checking it out, he was told that Gmail is designed that way, and deleting an
item from your Inbox deletes it period. Not especially user- friendly, is it?
