Mails not getting deleted on server?


#1

I have been using Mailpile for a while and I am very happy. I wanted to try deleting emails on the server and have un-checked the option “leave mail on server”. However, none of the mails are deleted. Will they be deleted after a few days or what?

My Mailpile version is 1.0.0rc5 …

OK, figured it out. There is a setting “Allow deletion of e-mail from servers and mailboxes” in the " Security and Privacy Settings" which needs to be enabled.

Glad you figured it out!

The app prompts people to enable this once they’ve used it for a couple of weeks; the idea being we don’t do anything irreversible until people have some experience with the app.
