I have a question about using Archive and Delete when accessing gmail
via gnus. I am aware, that Archiving can be achieved by "deleting" the
message in gnus from the e.g. inbox (B DEL), but then I always have to
confirm with "yes". Also, it might be dangerous when using this on other

In contrast, "Deleting" can be achieved by moving the message to the
folder [gmail]\bin (or what it is called in the locale one is using). 

Now I am using Expire to move the emails to the bin folder, i.e. to
delete them. But is there something similar I could use to Archive them?
especially archiving several message becomes a pain. 

Would it be possible, to define a key (possibly A) to archive, while E
still expires (i.e. deletes) the email?
