I am receiving some useless mails every now and then. I have applied a filter for it in my Inbox in Gmail, but it resides in Trash. I also want it to get deleted instantly as it comes into Trash as well.

Please suggest me an automated functionality to do this.

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

Why do you want this? Messages in the trash are out of your sight anyway, and they're deleted after 30 days. – jtbandes Aug 12 '11 at 6:50
I want that to be deleted without my attention just like filters – OM The Eternity Aug 12 '11 at 6:58

You can't do that from the web app, it gets emptied automatically after 30 days. You could do it via IMAP, from a desktop client.
