Further, clearing the trash mailbox does not update the server. This bug may be linked to Bug 195052 (Option to remove junk mail from POP3 account - even though other messages are left on server) I also note that in early 1.4 builds that classified and moved junk mail (let alone deleted) WAS deleted from the server. Hence marking as 'Major' since this seems to be a regression. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce:
Confirming on Linux build 2003072105
This also holds true for manual filtering. If I set up a rule that moves a particular message from the inbox or deletes it, it will remain on the server. This is even if I have enabled the option to delete messages from server when moved from inbox or deleted.

FWIW, I'm using MailWasher as a temporary workaround, since it *CAN* delete mail from a POP3 server without downloding it. But I really hate having to use a second tool when Mozilla should be a complete solution.
Same problem appears in Thunderbird 0.3.
Is this a dupe of bug 89034 ?
Yes, it is. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 89034 ***
