(Filing this title under “Sequences of words that wouldn’t have made much sense about a decade ago”.)
Do you use Gmail on OS X Mavericks’ Mail.app? Do you archive emails by deleting, cackling madly while doing so? DON’T (archive by deleting; cackling madly is still ok for now). Use ctrl-cmd-a or the “Archive” toolbar button instead.
The linked article has more details: Mail.app now automatically maps your Gmail’s Trash folder to your own, so your deleted mails will be gone in 30 days. Instead, Mail.app now recognises that “All Mail” in Gmail accounts map to your archives. (You’ll also need to enable “All Mail” in your Gmail IMAP settings, if you’d previously disabled it to save space.)
