RE: [Evolution] Stupid MUA Behavior (Trash)

 Please note that some webmail clients work with pop (and "leave messages on server" feature so You can pick 
them up later).
When You delete from one of's expunged, not deleted.
A true IMAP works as decribed...

Why is it that when using Evolution as a MUA with IMAP when I delete

IMAP account

hitting delete on a message in, say, INBOX, just flags the message as 
deleted (this is how IMAP works, and in fact, all other mail clients)

I'm not entirely sure if you meant what you wrote there, or whether you meant that it's how all mail clients 
of an IMAP server behave.

I'm still smarting over losing 11 days of mail through a combination of
incompetence and unfamiliarity with an email client.   When on vacation
a few weeks ago I didn't have proper net access and was reduced to using a web-mail client to read my 
accumulated mail.  I tried to mark and delete all the spam but succeeded in marking and deleting everything.
There was no undelete function  8-(

An urgent mail to my ISP's helldesk revealed that they considered a RAID array adequate backup.  They were 
concerned only about hardware reliability and (apparently) don't take any precautions against 
software-inflicted data corruption.
