Description

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; es-ES; rv:1.8.0.5) Gecko/20060731 Ubuntu/dapper-security Firefox/1.5.0.5
Build Identifier: Thunderbird/1.5.0.5

I've set three accounts with prefs like this (from prefs.js):

user_pref("mail.server.server2.ageLimit", 30);
user_pref("mail.server.server2.daysToKeepBodies", 30);
user_pref("mail.server.server2.daysToKeepHdrs", 30);
user_pref("mail.server.server2.delete_by_age_from_server", true);
user_pref("mail.server.server2.directory", "C:\\WINNT\\Application Data\\Thunderbird\\Profiles\\answ9kbm.default\\Mail\\mail.domain.com");
user_pref("mail.server.server2.directory-rel", "[ProfD]Mail/mail.domain.com");
user_pref("mail.server.server2.download_on_biff", true);
user_pref("mail.server.server2.hostname", "mail.domain.com");
user_pref("mail.server.server2.leave_on_server", true);
user_pref("mail.server.server2.login_at_startup", true);
user_pref("mail.server.server2.name", "DOMAIN");
user_pref("mail.server.server2.numHdrsToKeep", 30);
user_pref("mail.server.server2.num_days_to_leave_on_server", 30);
user_pref("mail.server.server2.type", "pop3");
user_pref("mail.server.server2.userName", "username@domain.com");

So, I try to keep messages on server for the last 30 days. Server is running hMailserver 4.1.1-B140

Thunderbird leaves all mail in server, and doesn't remove the old one. It should delete those older than 30 days. However, mail since May is stored on server.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install hMailserver on a Windows machine
2. Setup accounts as described
3. Download messages
4. Telnet to POP server.

Actual Results:  
The mail remains in POP server

Expected Results:  
Mail older than 30 days should be deleted

I've tested it on TB/Linux (Debian Sarge, TB/1.0.2) and TB/Win 1.5.0.5
Can you reproduce with Thunderbird v2.0.0.14 ?
(or Thunderbird v3.0a2pre ?)
Version: unspecified → 1.5
