This goes for all message folders, including subfolders. I checked this by opening the respective files in a text editor and finding messaged I deleted there, even though they no longer appeared in the messages window. Deleting and automatically recreating the msf files did not show these "deleted" messages. On that note, teh same applies when moving messages from one folder to another. They are never deleted from the folder the are moved from. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Receive a message (say, a single message in the "Junk" message folder 2. Delete the message, or move it to another folder (both have the same effect of removing the message from that specific folder) 3. Empty the trash 4. Quit Thunderbird 5. Manually open /Local Folders/Mail/Junk Actual Results: The message (header and body) that was downloaded appears in the "Junk" file. Expected Results: The Junk mail file should not contain that file (in the example above, it should be empty) A similar bug was repoted earlier, but was reported to be fixed. I just downloaded the newet version of Thunderbird, and the error still occurs.
As it turns ou, deleted messages are marked in their respective files with "X-Mozilla Status=XXX9". Compacting a folder will get rid of those. However, an option like "compact forlders on exit" or "compact folders if file sizes increase beyond XMB" would be nice.

and there is a bug on that.
