    Re: evolution does not delete trash

    Can you be more specific?

    Are you using IMAP or POP?

    If you're using IMAP dig around in the settings and make sure 'expunge on quit' or something like that is checked. I think this will do what you want.
    on freenode as Zeike or brandonj, depending on my mood.

    Sorry you are having this issue. I personally use IMAP and everything works great. Hopefully someone will have an answer for you here. Sorry I could not be of more help.

    Re: evolution does not delete trash

    Well somewhere here there is a SOLVED thread for this
    problem, But I cannot find it anymore. But I just did
    it and it worked.

    Close Evolution and Go to your home folder -> View ->
    SHow hidden files. Go to .evolution/mail/local and
    delete all the files with these suffixes:

    .index
    .ev-summary
    .cmeta

    DO NOT DELETE and .data files.

    I also went into the #evolution.sbd folder and
    deleted the TRASH.cmeta file.

    Reopen Evolution ... it will take some time now
    because all the indexes will have to be redone.
    But once it is open, everything will be there
    but now you will be able to expunde Trash.

    It worked for me, and that;s all I can say. You
    might want to back-up Evolution before you do it
    in case you make any mistakes, but I didn't do
    that. Just be careful in what you delete.
