Thanks for telling me about the server settings under the account
section. For some reason, I completely tabbed over the treeview
where the server settings are held and missed even more settings
than I know what to do .
Trash was already selected, but I re selected it in the combo box
after double checking what was in there. Now mail is moving to
trash as expected.
Thunderbird is such a powerful email client!

If you open Account Settings for the account where it's not going
to trash, then open Server Settings, there is a section with three
radio buttons that is entitled, When I delete a message.
The three radio button choices are:
1. Move it to a folder (followed by a dropdown that allows you to
select the folder, which defaults to something other than Trash on
your account's IMAP server).
2. Just mark it as deleted.
3. Remove it immediately.
If you have anything other than the first choice chosen, or you
have the first choice chosen but have not set the folder to Trash
under that Gmail account on the server, it's going somewhere else.
