When using filters to move mail away from the inbox, it does not delete the mail from the POP server like when mail is moved manually from the inbox. I'd suggest an option to delete the mail from the POP server for a "move" filter rule. maybe related to bug 47297, bug 61635, bug 66270 and bug 104029
Or maybe a seperate filter action to delete from POP server (but not locally). This would make things more flexible and maybe make more sense in view of bug 13145 ?
i agree to comment 1. this would be a nice option to keep my mailbox clean from messages automatically generated (w3-style or mozilla bugmail, e.g.). those messages don't need to reside on the server. if we could delete them from the server but store them locally, i could keep them all in a folder while removing them from the server -- so it would be MUCH easier to check mails via a webinterface, if you're not at home. i'll give it a vote. but shall we mark this bug depentant of bug 13145, since it really would only make sense if this feature was implemented (which i already voted for).
Finding this bug, ends the frustrations I've been having with "filters" and deleting mail from my mail server. Using a "Mozilla Mail" filter.. I filter all bugzilla email to a local folder. I suppose my *expectation* was that if I delete the (filtered) mail, it would also be deleted on the server it originated from. I was quite surprised the first time I checked my mail server (after using filters), to find over 300 bugzilla emails that I *thought* I had deleted. I am unsure what the majority of people would expect in this case, but I (for one) would like to see an option to 'delete mail from server' after applying the filter (moving the mail). (note: 'mozilla0.9.9' keyword is outdated, please update)
This bug would probably be useful for deleting messages over a certain size for people with slow connections, but otherwise, message aging in days (bug 11055) would probably be more useful.
Depends on: 11055
Err, bug 107883 would be a better bug to depend on that bug 11055.

This is a dupe of bug 74430 Finally I don't see how _implementation_ of this feature blocks or depends on _implementation_ of the blocking and depending bugs, so am removing those. I think this'll serve to un-entangle this entire mess (see also bug 104029) of closely related bugs; if you disagree, please explain clearly where my reasoning fails. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 74430 ***
