    Where is the archive located in the original iPad ? I assume when we archive a piece of email that we could retrieve it again ?

    It archives it on the server, not the iPad. Where that is stored depends on your email service provider. In GMail it moves the email to the All Email folder. You can see this if you tap the mailbox button to see all inboxes and accounts, then choose the GMail account at the bottom (not the inbox).

    I have this turned off in my GMail account. I don't find it useful. Instead I created some folders using the Google web site mail client (called labels there), then use the folder icon in Mail to move files I want saved into those folder. Still stored on the sever, but easily accessible on the iPad with better organization.

    The archive feature is't available if you use the Exchange method to set up your GMail anyway, and I almost always have my GMail set up that way, except when I'm testing the differences between the accounts.

    I just happened to notice the text under the the Archive Messages switch, or I'd have no idea either. GMail (the standard account) is the only account I have that shows the option.
