Regarding IMAP Email


How do I delete an email in those email software? I realise that I have to delete it via the web-based email then it will go to the trash.

imap email remains on the remote server at all times. if you delete the email you are reading, you are deleting the remote document. does that answer your question? I don't really see what you are gettnig at though.

Sorry let me rephrase again.

I am using an IMAP Email Account. It have a web-based site where I can check my imap account. I also use Evolution to check my email account but whenever I delete the email in Evolution, the email is still there when I use the web site. I have to delete from the web site in order to delete it permanently.

sounds like you're getting deleting and purging confused. you normally delete files, which greys them out or something, then you purge, which actually removes these. you're possibly purging automatically when you delete it on the web client, or quitting the web page...

So is it possible that the mail client automatically purge mails when deleted?

well it naturally depends on the client... how would I know if your client can do this if i don't know what your client is?

maybe instead of just bumping a thread you could have actually researched it yourself, and if you were still unsure, post back adding in comments and reference to what you have been able to find out by yourself

I think you have to specially configure whatever client ur using to purge the document at the server automatically when deleted . There is an option in evolution for doing that.
