When I delete email from my sent items, or any other view, Gmail asks for my confirmation to delete mail.

Is there any way to I can turn this confirmation off?

Any browser add-on (Greasemonkey script will do)?

no. This is because the message isn't in the inbox, it's archived. – dkuntz2 Apr 22 '11 at 1:50
Can someone explain why the down vote? Yeah, what I need may be silly for you, that doesn't mean that you have to vote me down – user Apr 22 '11 at 13:09
I would also like to avoid this dialog. Having read it once I understand that I'm deleting the final copy and don't need to be told every time. – noodl Sep 21 '12 at 5:26

NO. There are no such option available in Gmail or in Gmail Labs . None of the popular Gmail Greasemonkey scripts claim to do this. The best you can do is write your own Greasemonkey script for this or suggest a Gmail Labs feature request here. If it's a popular request it might get implemented.
