Be Careful with This
Authored by: dmbrown on Nov 05, '09 11:46:17AM

Note that deleting a message with option-delete does not move the message to your Trash folder - it will completely erase the message. Too bad, because I'd like to be able to delete a message and not necessarily move to the next one in Mail, but I want deleted messages in the Trash.

Thanks for the alert. Now if only this were a wiki, we could put that into the hint body...

From what I can tell, this depends on what email provider you use. It doesn't show up in MobileMe trash, but does for Gmail (at least via IMAP). So far I can reproduce this 100%; every message I've Option-Deleted in Mail from my Gmail IMAP account has shown up in my trash.
