Gmail IMAP - How to send mails to [Gmail]/Trash

  1. Default Gmail IMAP - How to send mails to [Gmail]/Trash

    Hi all,

    I'm a new at this console email thing. Set up Gmail IMAP on alpine
    v1.0, it's working great, 'cept for a few annoyances.

    I can't seem to delete my emails permenantly. They're sent to [Gmail]/
    All Mail. I tried searching through the archives, but can't find
    anything related. Can alpine send the 'deleted' emails to [Gmail]/
    Trash when it expunges them?

    best,

    Nancy's Guide is as usual rather excellent. Gmail's system is a bit strange
    - "d" deletes from current view but leaves the message in All Mail. To
    delete, save the file to the Trash folder

    I have got the same annoyance. I don't understand why Gmail wants to
    be so special about managing the messages from an application via
    IMAP. Also when you delete a message in INBOX, it gets immediately
    expunged when you refresh that INBOX (same things happens with webmail
    though), which I find annoying too.

    The problem is that when you delete a message in your INBOX from
    alpine (or another mail app I guess), that message formally disappears
    from your INBOX, but it is not put In the [Google Mail]/Bin folder and
    it does not disappear from [Google Mail]/All Mail (unlike what happens
    within webmail). Why???! Why did google choose to have these
    nonstandard IMAP behaviours? (see <http://www.ii.com/internet/
    messaging/pine/pc/#gmailIMAP>)

    I tried to setup a filtering rule based on <http://groups.google.com/
    group/comp.mail.pine/browse_thread/thread/
    74a70d9289a68379/065f2de464e4829a?lnk=gst&q=Trash
    +alpine#065f2de464e4829a> that would move any deleted message to the
    [Google Mail]/Bin folder upon expungeing, but while this rule works
    fine if the deleted message is in an INBOX from another email account
    (not a gmail one), it fails with alpine when the message is deleted in
    the gmail INBOX!!?

    I was also thinking that a (poor) workaround would be to change your
    INBOX path to the [Google Mail]/All Mail path, so that deleted
    messages there are really deleted, but messages in that folder deleted
    from alpine are not considered so for google and you cannot expunge
    them (although the 'deleted' flag appears in alpine, nothing changes
    on webmail).

    Anybody has an idea? These annoyances just prevent me from using
    google mail (I like alpine more than google...)

    The real idea would be to have alpine let us configure a 'move to
    trash' option instead of straight delete. Then when you 'deleted' a
    mail, it would get moved to a specified mailbox (trash) instead of the
    goofy gmail behavior. As it is, if I want to delete messages, I have
    to type 's [ tab T tab'.
