Thanks for the bug report.

In what kind of account are you seeing this behavior?
Local mailbox?  IMAP?  Exchange?
Comment 2 Xiaohong Wang 2006-09-19 05:21:17 EDT
For evolution-2.7.4-4 "Delete" doesn't work in Trash in all kinds of account you
list above 

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).
Comment 3 Matthew Barnes 2006-09-21 14:28:26 EDT
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.
