getting rid of IMAP deletes?
Authored by: chip on Jul 03, '02 07:20:29AM

The thing that I hate most about Entourage is the inability to permanently get rid of deleted or filed messages. They keep coming back. If, after a large cleanup (I get a couple of hundred a day) I delete/file a bunch of messages, either none or half will return. If I open Entourage with the option key (which is a database synch of some sort), that will sometimes help to get rid of more - but usually not all by any means.

The only solution for me is to 1) use Netscape to delete stuff - it's usually successful or 2) use pine to delete stuff - it's always successful.

Any way to do this efficiently?

Have you tried playing with the settings in
Tools: Accounts: Advanced Settings
Empty deleted items on quit looks worth enabling

Also, in
