Evolution would hide the deleted messages for me. However, not only does Mozilla not allow me to view only non-deleted messages, it won't even let me sort or filter by whether a message is deleted. 'Message Status' consists of Read/Unread/Replied/Forwarded; 'Deleted' should be one of these. The only way of manipulating the 'Deleted' flag is to toggle it with the 'Delete' button. It should be treated like any other mail header. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Place some messages in an IMAP folder. 2. Set that account to mark-as-deleted. 3. Mark some of them as deleted. 4. There is now no way of sorting the list so that all the deleted messages are hidden, or shown first (or last). Expected Results: Desired behaviour: * An option in the View menu; 'Don't show deleted'. * A new column in the address list to show the state of the deleted flag. Or, add it to the Message Status column. This makes the mark-as-deleted trash mode pretty much unusable. In this mode, all deleting a message does is put a big X through the icon in the address list; it still appears in the list and takes up mental and screen real estate. Check out Evolution, which does this properly (if very slowly).
Not really a bug, but a reasonable enhancement request. Couldn't find a dupe and I think this feature would really make sense. Marking NEW. -> MailNews/Filters

Summary: Can't manage mail by 'deleted' flag → [IMAP] Can't manage mail by 'deleted' flag
I recently had occasion to need this again, and had another look. It turns out that the View->Messages filters *also* can't select by deleted flag (otherwise I could just create a filter that only showed non-deleted messages). The information's there, so it must be pretty simple to add a new filter type --- how well documented is all this stuff?
sorry for the spam. making bugzilla reflect reality as I'm not working on these bugs. filter on FOOBARCHEESE to remove these in bulk.

Here's an implementation of a Mailbox View that filters out deleted messages in IMAP mailboxes.
Dale Wiggins <email@example.com> wrote the code (I was just submitting it), so I'm reassigning the bug to him.
Assignee: beckley → dwiggins
Status: ASSIGNED → NEW
cool - my preference would be to not show this menu item at all unless it was an imap folder (i.e., hidden, not just disabled), and only show it if the current server is using the imap delete model. Would that be OK?
This patch implements the suggestions that David made. The menu item is now hidden if it doesn't apply, and it only applies if the account is currently using the IMAP delete model.

Comment on attachment 284895 [details] [diff] [review] Changes David suggested you might want to ask one of the seamonkey guys to fix this for seamonkey too - by adding the new string entity to their version of msgViewPickerOverlay.dtd , or you can do it yourself.

Any update on the seamonkey part, so we can get this in?

Basically, SM is just lacking the .dtd, but I included an unbitrotted patch against mailWindowOverlay.xul as well. You can check in this along with your patch and r=me for the overall SM changes.
This patch contains the original implementation, changes suggested by David and Karsten's SeaMonkey changes. Hopefully this patch wraps this one up.

>It's kinda worrying to see the same file patched twice identically. ;-) >Especially since patch (of course) can't apply the second instance... Huh. I didn't generate the initial patch so I'm not sure what happened there. I took the original patch and added the SeaMonkey change.
That was my bad in the second patch where I had added the changes David had suggested. Not sure how it happened, but the first version of msgViewPickerOverlay.js in the patch is the one with the extra changes, whereas the second version is the original changes. Just ignore the second one. :-)
Here's a clean version of the patch with the duplicate file diff removed.
Jeff/Dale, unless I did something wrong, after applying that last patch, I still see View | Not deleted in the view menu for local folders, imap folders, etc. I mean the view drop down menu on the toolbar.
You're right, David. "Not Deleted" gets hidden from the View->Messages menu, but not from the View popup on the toolbar. We'll have to fix that.
Huh, thought I had tested that case. I'll take a look.
This patch adds the code to get the View popup on the toolbar to update before it pops up, so it fixes the problem of the "Not Deleted" item showing up on mailboxes where it doesn't belong.
I've been using my own patches from 243075 for years, every time I need to update thunderbird to a new version or platform. I've really been hoping that they would be integrated so that I could run binary releases. Since the patch here in 190974 speak to the same issue I'm happy to switch. But is this patch on the road to integration? Will it show up in a 2.x as well as 3.x?
This will be available for 3.0 only. (as soon as it get's sr+)
(In reply to comment #26) > This will be available for 3.0 only. (as soon as it get's sr+) > Any progress on sr+? Seems like its been a while.
I've running this patch for a month now, with no problem. It would be great to have it integrated.
How can I apply this patch to my Seamonkey and Thunderbird installations?

I'm on version 3.0a2pre (2008071003) and not seeing any additional menus. Where should I look? I have enabled mark as deleted model.
Look in the Folder views widget (in the toolbar) and under View | Messages
I'm not sure if this is a bug or intended behavior (it's behaving the same in TB 2.0 as well), but you don't get the View->Messages menu unless you have the Mail Views control on your toolbar. You can get that by right-clicking on the toolbar, and selecting Customize. You may have to scroll until you can see the Mail Views control in the dialog, but then drag it to your toolbar and hit OK in the dialog. Once you do that you can either change to the Not Deleted view in the Mail Views toolbar control or the View->Messages menu.
Thanks guys, that's do a trick. It have per folder settings, can I override this to all new created folder and others?
Seems working fine for me, here my observation. When I delete message it will stay here until I select other folder and come back. Selecting folder with deleted messages where I have them, show every messages for about 1 sec. Is this intended behavior?
(In reply to comment #47) > When I delete message it will stay here until I select other folder and come > back. I am observing the same behaviour, which makes the enhancement not really usable to me; also, it is different from the behaviour of all other clients. Is there a way to have TB auto-update the view after deleting a message?
I'm sorry to post again, but... I wonder if the current fix really helps all the people out there waiting for this feature for such a long time. The issue (hiding deleted mails in IMAP model) has been around for years now, having a few "duplicate" bugs finally going into this one... The result is, IMHO, not at all sufficient. It does not work "instantly" as expected and it is not flexible (no customized views with this "deleted-check" possible). As all older bugs filed seem to have been closed, I would like to add a "wish" again: Why not have the flag "message deleted" as an option in the "customized message views" system, where we can choose it like all other "status" flags to filter and select? AFAIK, there has been a patch allowing just that before in one of the "closed" bugs anyway! And, still, why does an action like "deleting" not enforce an automatic update of the current view - which would make using possible. Again: Without at least the latter, the whole "fix" seems no help at all. Sorry to bother...
I think not automatically updating should be a separate bug since it may not be related. I can go into the Tasks view, type in a task where it says "Click here to add a new task" and add a task, and the task view does not update automatically either. I have to switch away and back before I see the task, even though the task alarm triggers immediately.
This still isn't fixed in the released version. The diffs uploaded in https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/attachment.cgi?id=328559&action=edit aren't applied the released source as of 184.108.40.206
This fix won't be applied to 2.0 versions. It's only in 3.0 builds.
