I think this is the problem: The term "Trash" has a meaning assigned to it
that people are accustomed to from using other mail clients... Deleted
things get *moved* into it, and you go in there to pull them out.
Furthermore, you're used to seeing one for each account you pull mail from.
We're running into problems because we're using the same term but it means
something completely different.

My suggestion?  Rename "Trash" to "Deleted Items" and put it down among the
vFolders.  (You can pick something shorter/more specific than "Deleted
Items", as long as it doesn't confuse with "Trash".)  If, as some have
suggested, traditional Trash functionality is available in a later release,
call THAT "Trash", but retain "Deleted Items" for the name of this vFolder.


I with Bret on this. Especially since, using the Trash name means that I can't get to the real IMAP folder called Trash that all my other mail readers use.

Having the vFolder would be fine if Evo was all I use. Many of us use more than just evo to access mail.
I use Evo on Linux, Mozilla on windows, mutt when remote and so on.
