Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 201516
Delete doesn't work in Trash
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:39 EST
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch Mail-Evolution and select "Trash"
3. Select a message in Trash and click "Delete" button on Toolbar
Nothing happens, it doesn't work
It works correctly in thunderbird
Thanks for the bug report.
In what kind of account are you seeing this behavior?
Local mailbox? IMAP? Exchange?
For evolution-2.7.4-4 "Delete" doesn't work in Trash in all kinds of account you
And it seems that "Delete" button is grey and inactivated in latest
But as a user, I think "Delete" button shouldn't be inactivated, it is useful
(just like in Thunderbird).
Deleting a message in the Trash folder would actually be an expunge operation,
but I don't think Evolution is capable of expunging individual messages. It
seems to be all or nothing. I'm not sure how Thurderbird does it.
So your suggestion may be a valid enhancement, but I'm going to close this bug
since the UI has been corrected. Feel free to re-open it if you disagree.
