    How come sometimes it's a trash can and other times it's an icon of a box?
    Why can't they just use a trash can without causing confusion using a different icon when deleting something?

    Because when it's a box, that means its set up to Archive, not delete, your mail.

    You can change the behavior in the Settings app, but they are two entirely different operations.
