What do you "compressing"? Evo doesn't support compression of folders.
Sorry, I meant compact. It's on the Folders menu, the shorcut is Ctrl-E.

In that case someone needs to check the Spanish translation. Assuming

by compacting, and the same is true of local mbox-format folders, but
these are implementation details which shouldn't appear in a MUA user
interface. File-per-message implementations such as Cyrus don't ever do
compacting in this sense.
