Is the "Delete Forever" in the Trash of Gmail a new function? if yes, when did it come out?

No, it's been there as long as I remember...

Actually, I believe there was a time when you were forced to move it to the trash first, and only then be able to delete it forever (in the trash tab). But I don't know for sure.

If they are going to be deleting messages they better show how many messages are in the spam folder....a lot of my legitimate email goes in there.
I finally received two spam messages, but I think they were just from a spammer trying a lot of combinations of first and last names.

Hi, can we see the email after deleting it forever from gmail account?

Rakhi, maybe with Google Desktop's search (and then opening the cached version)? But in general, I'd say no...
