Description

16 years ago
When talking to an AOL IMAP server, Mozilla enables the private X-AOL-OPTION
+READMBOX extension.  This causes confusing behavior, with \Seen messages being
moved from INBOX to the "READ" folder.  This AOL private extension is not
intended for general purpose IMAP clients such as Mozilla.

If only it were so simple. If you don't use readmbox, then there's no trash
folder (the recently deleted messages folder). You could use the imap delete
model, but that's very unattractive.

I think we should have a pref for doing this. I'll code up a fix. In the future,
it would be nice to have a ui for this as well.
