As I understand it even the deleted messages are stored on the Google 
servers for 30 days and can be searched for and retrieved if required during 
that period. Archived mail is of course stored indefinitely. 
I find that the space I am using remains fairly constant around the 150 - 200 
mb mark, but I would expect it to grow slightly as I Archive more messages.  

There is also an option to delete for ever  - which I use with items  
collecting  in the Spam folder.  

hope that helps,
