 hmm - this is philosophie ...
Why do we habe an trash folder in Outlook ?
-> well i think that it is possible to undelete a mail - or ?

But i got per day amount 500 spam-mails - so it would be nice if i
check/look in the folder "SPAM" and i cam really delete all spams..
But these SPAMS then goes to "TRASH"-folder in an imap-system.

So - yet - it is normal for me also, that i got some "ham mails" in folder
"INBOX", which are delete,, because i think that is not interesst anymore
for me.
But i could be possible that it is interessing to undelete it, why i share
it with a other user , too (small office 4 person).

So yet i have a mix in the "TRASH" folder with delete "spam mails" and
"ham-mails" (amount 2000 mails in 3 days..), and there i know 100% that the
SPAM-Mails there i want to delete, because nobody need the spam-mails in
folder "TRASH" there inside - never times.
The ham-mails there i want to hold - maybe somebody wants to recover a

I hope ist clear - why a function for that would be really good to get.


For future i will try to install all necc. sources  - then i can help to
force your great project.
