Using thunderbird, how does one convert an imap account to pop? I
think I'd like that better.

I have a pop account, as far as I know.
The folder is “trash”.
If one has an
IMAP account, does he need to log onto GMail to perform
maintenance or can it be done effectively in his local email

my memory is incorrect. I may have tried to delete

tried deleting a message from trash using an IMAP
account with Google and Thunderbird and the message
didn’t return. It is gone. Why you can’t delete
messages is something I don’t know.

Re: [TechTalk] getting rid of deleted messages
you using an IMAP account? From what I’ve
read, GMail automatically removes messages
that are more than thirty days old. I haven’t
played with this to any extent but it appears
to me that if you delete the messages in the
trash folder in your e-mail program, they
aren’t deleted from the Gmail site and come
back, There may be some setting that allows
this, but I don’t know it. I may play a bit
with this and verify if I am correct.
don’t have a folder named deleted messages.
its named Trash. Do you have a deleted

[TechTalk] getting rid of deleted
have several thousand messages in my trash
folder. I have tried selecting all, shift
delete and just delete after selecting, and I
don’t seem to be able to get rid of them.
Sometimes it just sits there and I can type
Windows key+m and it will go to the desktop.
But, when I alt+tab that folder is still there
and JAWS says deleted mail. The mail client
is Windows 10 Mail with JAWS 21. I have only
had this laptop for a few months, and am
trying to get use to it. Thanks for any
