Bypass the trash when deleting messages in Mail
Authored by: Big Blue Canuck on Apr 06, '04 06:45:22PM

Is there an Applescript or something to get rid of the garbage from the spam folder? I hate getting my spam folder built up and having to manually delete the messages in there. Also I can't get mail to delete the messages on the server after I get them even though I have it set to to delete them in the advanced section of mail.

The feature "Remove messages from server..." has been broken for me on all releases of Panther. Numerous feedbacks to Apple haven't seemed to help. This worked great in Jaguar, allowing me to keep my local inbox synced with my POP inbox, which is ideal if one travels a lot. My setting is "Remove messages from server: When moved from Inbox" (ie moving a message to the trash folder).
