Re: [Evolution] Confused about Trash folder / Expunging functions w/IMAP

I see the strike-thru msgs as I would expect to. I'm currently hiding them with the "hide deleted msgs" option until I expunge manually (like you're doing) -out of site out of mind doesn't work for me. I know there still there. and my quota will soon remind me if I forget ;)

My problem is that I would like to have something like an "expunge deleted message older than" option. I just wanted to be certain such a  thing didn't already exist within the "delete on exit" option. I guess this is turning into more of a feature request...

Do you have some reason to think this? What exactly are you seeing?

If you mean empty your trash folders on exit (or equivalently, expunge
all folders with deleted messages), then no.

I leave the deleted messages visible and expunge manually. I use Empty
Trash from time to time in case I've forgotten any. I don't like "empty
trash on exit". All these are personal preferences. There's no right or
wrong about them.
