Re: [Evolution] IMAP Trash folder?

Food for thought, some minor discussion about IMAP.

"Windows IMAP clients


 To delete e-mails in your remote mailboxes, select them and hit DEL, 
 followed by File | Compress this folder.


 Deleting e-mails in your remote mailboxes requires two steps: Select
 the e-mails and press DEL to mark them as Deleted, followed by Message
 | Purge Messages. This is actually a requirement of the IMAP
 protocol. If you want files to be deleted/moved in one go, Tools |
 Options | Incoming Mail | When I Delete a Message = Move it to
 Trash. Messages will be moved accordingly, but a copy is saved in your
 local Trash mailbox. To tell Eudora to empty it automatically when
 exiting, Tools | Options | Miscellaneous | Empty Trash when exiting"

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 think that might work well.  "Deleted Items" becomes one of several
vFolders and "Trash", with its rather concrete, real object nuance fits,

I'm not sure of the protocol, but I think you should move that forward
as a suggestion.  Whether that's bugzilla or what, just do it.

I have no idea.  Ximians?
