Hi Merton,

Not sure is goes the same with your version of KMail (I have Suse 9.3)

Under Settings/Configure KMail/Accounts/Receiving Tab,
make sure you *didn't* check the option :
	"Leave fetched messages on the server"

> KMail is configured to remove all Deleted messages when I  quit KMail.
What does that mean ? How dou you know ? I have problems understanding you 
because I never encountered this option in KMail.
On my version I belive the messages are removed from the server as soon as I 
*download* them, but there is also an option to empty the trashcan 
automatically when I *quit* KMail.( under ..../Misc)

Perhaps the versions are indeed quite different after all.

Greetings		Perry
