How often are you syncing? – Al E. Apr 22 '11 at 12:13
Someone's adding downvotes for a number of questions. This one's perfectly legitimate. – Sparx Apr 22 '11 at 15:58
thanks Sparx. My sync is always on – swd Apr 25 '11 at 10:12

Are you using the gmail app or the HTC mail app?

The first one, gmail app, will have everything synced right away.

The other option, using HTC mail will be using a pop/imap account for accessing your Gmail. In that case you can update the pop/imap settings in your gmail account logging in with a browser and going to your settings. There you can choose if you want messages to be deleted or not.

I was using Gmail app.. I have reinstall the android again and now its ok. I think the problem was because of titanium backup. I think problem started after i restore the system using titanium backup. May be it messed with some settings.. – swd Apr 28 '11 at 4:55

I had this same problem today on my S3, although it wasn't just deleting that didn't work. Nothing I did within my phone's GMail app would sync properly--archiving, marking as read, etc.

I was able to fix it by clearing cache, and clearing data (both found on the App info page--Settings->Manage Apps). Once I did this, I had to reboot, as GMail kept crashing. After a reboot, everything was back to normal.
