I have done this for my account on an imap server. When I delete mail, the thunderbird interface shows the mail moved to the trash folder. Internal to the IMAP server, however, it has only been marked as deleted. What I desire is that the mail is really moved to a trash folder on the imap server as soon as I tell thunderbird to do so. Currently, however, the mail is never moved to a trash folder. Why is this important? Mostly because I use multiple mail readers depending on context (web, pine, and thundirbird) and marking mail as deleted is not consistently interpreted by all, whereas placing the mail in a separate mailbox is. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. tools > account settings > server settings > when I delete a message: "move it to the trash folder" 2. delete a message from the inbox (thunderbird now shows it in the trash) 3. log into the imap server directly and find the message still in the inbox. Actual Results: mail marked as deleted Expected Results: mail moved to "Trash" folder
I have the same kind of problem : when "move it to the trash folder" on an imap server, and when I want to delete a message, then the message diseappears but does not go to the trash folder However, if I do the followings : - select the local mail account - select the imap server account then the icon of the trash is no longer the same, and now if I try to delete a message, it will be moved to the trash folder, as expected. So the problems are : - I need to select another mail account in order to be able to move messages to the trash folder when I delete them, which is strange - when I start thunderbird again, I need to do the manipulation describes above if I want the messages to be moves to the trash folder I hope this will help confirm the bug (which I noticed on both windows and linux (french) versions)
WFM with both TB 1.0.2 and the latest trunk (20050323). Deleted messages are *copied* to the Trash and then marked for deletion in the Inbox. This can easily be seen when accessing the mailbox with other mail clients (messages are crosslined). This behavior is by design, though I for one, don't find this design very user-friendly. To discuss this, head over to Bug 220064. Prog.
