How to stop in Lion creating an Archive folder for archiving in Gmail?

I recently upgraded to Lion. Until then I was using Sparrow for my mailing needs. I’d like to give Lion’s a try, but the missing support for Gmail’s archive feature is keeping me from it. Does anyone know a way to force to just remove the Inbox label from this email instead of adding a Archive label?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Have you tried right clicking the folder, going to account info, and then there are options to change the mailbox behaviours based on the folders? – Sandeep Bansal Jul 26 '11 at 17:43
@Sandeep: there is currently no way to change the behaviour of the Archive feature, e.g. Use this mailbox for… selection like for Drafts, Trash, Sent, etc. – fideli Jul 26 '11 at 18:03

Just delete the email from the Inbox and it will remove the Inbox label.

But this deletes the email. That is not what I want. – Ulf Klose Jul 28 '11 at 13:53
It deletes it from the Inbox (i.e. removes the Inbox label) but is still available in the All Mail folder. – fideli Jul 28 '11 at 16:07
Using backspace here deletes it. I can use the archive button but that moves it to IMAP/Archive, not what I want. – Espen Aug 10 '11 at 8:39
