Re: [Evolution] auto move

You realise that the way other mail clients do it is by hiding the
deleted messages without giving you the choice of viewing them, don't

Well, that's how it is done in other mail clients, which is why they
have options like "Compact Folder" which is the same as our Expunge.

The only difference is that we allow you to view deleted messages inline
if you so choose (I prefer this way).

View->Hide Deleted Messages

From an external viewpoint that certainly does it, however that's more
like sweeping the dust unter the rug than solving the issue. I heavily
rely on filters, and with the current policy my Trash unavoidably gets
cluttered with mails that have been just moved.

In order to prevent my remote account from overflowing, I must regularly
and manually empty the Trash for things that have not really been
deleted. I'd really appreciate if evol was intelligent enough to notice
that moved mails don't need back-up, and could avoid me this repeated
tidying job. But maybe I'm missing some technical issue that makes such
a feature difficult to program.

So if the messages are moved to a folder other than /dev/null, can we have an option to just remove 
those from the inbox automatically ?
I mean message headers should not be there in the inbox for after these copy/delete operation. This 
will clearly help the appearence of the inbox if you receive 
messages from various mailing lists and would not like these appear as strike though mails in your in

Currently filtering only marks these mails to be moved/delted etc by overstriking, what I mean is a 
menu option which if set will do an auto move for the 
filtered mails to different folders selected, which I have not seen in the latest, this is 
not auto expunge as it includes deletion of mails too.

Filters *do* move the messages, they don't mark them for moving. The
strike-through is because a Move is a Copy and a Delete.
