Postie IMAP4 message deletion

Keywords: 	 Postie IMAP4 message deletion

Question:

Although IMAP purge function is supported in POSTIE, it seems that marking for deletion function is not available.

Is there any way to enable marking for deletion?

Answer:

Ok, it turns out it's a documentation problem. The latest Postie help file explains it a bit better.

Basically, the following applies to using the "d" delete option in kGetMail:

POP3: Read and delete the specified incoming message(s).

IMAP4: Use the "d" option to mark the message for deletion, then you need to do a purge (in kManageImap) to actually delete the messages you previously marked for deletion. The deleted messages will not show up as being deleted until you restart your mail client.
