    We want the option that says "Confirm before deleting" in the "Action Confirmation" section.
    This means that if we try to delete a conversation in Gmail, it will ask us to confirm that choice to make sure we really do want to delete it. We can see it is currently off because the box is empty. To turn it on, press down on the box.
