    Sometimes different devices/computer clients set up Trash folders of their own, and they show up as folders named Trash, rather than the trash can icon. Depending on what device, web client, computer you delete from, the email goes to those folders.

    This varies from account type to account type.

    Not really. If you go through the settings of your other clients you may be able to reset your Trash to an IMAP trash folder on the server. But whether you can do that, and what the results will be differ from client to client.

    You may be able to adjust where the Trash is stored on the iPad, depending on the account type. Open your account and search through the options. You can sometimes find it under an Advanced tab after selecting the account email address after selecting the account itself. :)

    MobileMe will let you change the Trash location to an IMAP folder. So will Yahoo.

    Google as an Exchange account won't. Google as a GMail account looks like it will, but it doesn't list any folders to choose from, at least on my account. That may be because I don't have Mail syncing turned on for that account.
