1) When you use The Bat's filters to move incoming messages out of an IMAP account's inbox (for instance to a common folder). then they should be automatically removed from the mailserver, but they're not.
%%% that is true
2) You have set up maintenance criteria for the common folders in terms of how many messages they may hold and how old messages may get, but The Bat doesn't clean them up when you exit the program or when you run the maintenace center.
%%% That too is correct
Is there anything special about these common folders -- are they located on your local harddisk or do you have a more complicated setup that involves a network or cloud folder? Do you run The Bat from a regular user account on that PC or as Admin?
some comments by me are above and prefaced with %%%
All on my local hard drive; at home; no network
There are currently 4059 emails in that account residing in the inbox, ON the email server ....
I was looking at those messages on the server.
they are grayed out ;;;which, IIRC, means marked-for-deletion .
So I confirmed that in the web-mail-online location.
Once I made the changes to cause Delete permanently if deleted, the Inbox returned to a current Zero.
That "problem" is now solved.
Back in The Bat! However, and after a re-start of The Bat!, there are still Common Folders containing at least 200 emails more than the Folder Settings call for.
This then is the remaining and large, problem.
I notice that when I run the Maintenance Center that 111 Folders are checked; it seems that "no problems detected" is the result for all.
Yet at the bottom of that window, on the right side, "Stop" has the focus, as waiting for itself to finish. Or is it waiting for me to Stop MC?
In any event, the excessive folder email count remains the same everywhere.
