You can go into your actual email account from the PC and change the settings to only save to the server. This may mess up your sync notifications though on your phone. You can also go into the app to see if under Settings you can configure the app to only save messages on the server.

Samsung S3 Gmail trash folder problems?

In Samsung S3 Gmail trash folder shows some deleted mail but they are not there in Gmail server. Even if I delete them from trash folder from my desktop Outlook (GUI) for Gmail.

Google Support has a way to delete your trash for your specific Android version. That being said, I have changed my sync settings from 30 days to immediately and that got rid of emails that I deleted. Otherwise, they sit on your phone until your next Sync.
