    Sorry Mark, I love the idea of imap, I just hate that part of it.
    If I delete something I want it deleted. Not just lined through.

    I still don't understand why IMAP doesn't send deleted items to a deleted items folder.

    these two statements are contradictory! deleted to me means removed, vanished, eradicated, vamoosh (to use the technical term). sending deleted items to a trash can/deleted items folder is filing it from one folder to another.

    the imap delete at least does what it says on the tin, it marks the item as deleted and lets clients deal with it, whether it be with a line through or not displaying it, and removes it completely through the expunge action. the problem with the zimbra interface is that it ignores the delete flag and just continues to display it!

    I can tell you why I like it. I have my filtering deliver mail to many folders, so i don't just get new mail in the inbox. so when i go through those folders can delete things, they stay in that folder until i delete, so if i decide to undelete later because i deleted the wrong thing, it remained in the same hierarchical context the entire time.

    I'd prefer if the IMAP web client acted like an imap client, but as long as it at least hides the deleted messages, my multiple clients are at least in sync, so thanks for fixing the web client's respect for the deleted flag.
