Re: [Evolution] Removing read mail with 'extreme prejudice'

Evolution steadfastly holds mail after it is read or marked as spam, but
does not remove the transferred mail from the /var/spool/mail/ folders
after having done so.

(Would have been good to get some more details about your account

If /var/spool/mail/$USER is your "Inbox" mbox file, it really is. Then
that's where Evolution assumes your mails to be stored. Regardless if it
is unread, read or marked as Junk mail. Anything in your Inbox is stored
in that file.

Regarding mails marked as Junk: "Junk" is a vFolder, just like "Trash".
That means the mail has a status of being Junk or Deleted, but the mail
itself remains in it's physical location [1]. Junk mails (marked as
Junk) are not shown at all in any mail folder, Deleted mails (marked as
deleted) optionally can be shown:

  View / [] Hide deleted messages

HTH to understand why mails are not physically removed...


[1] until being deleted and the folder being expunged or the entire
Trash emptied

char *t="\10pse\0r\0dtu\0  ghno\x4e\xc8\x79\xf4\xab\x51\x8a\x10\xf4\xf4\xc4";
main(){ char h,m=h=*t++,*x=t+2*h,c,i,l=*x,s=0; for (i=0;i<l;i++){ i%8? c<<=1:
(c=*++x); c&128 && (s+=h); if (!(h>>=1)||!t[s+h]){ putchar(t[s]);h=m;s=0; }}}
