a lurker here:
I use squirellmail, normally, when I delete, and, refresh, deleted are gone
ocassionally, though, after deletion, deleted still show in 'inbox' THOUGH,
'faint colored', sometimes for quite a while
so, that means squirellmail ocassionally just tags them, or, there is some
delay in sending the follow up command, yes ?
