Description

hey folks -

just got the "too many emails - call us to move all but the last 1000" email from yall

so a few things:

  • taking yall up on your offer to move to another folder
  • wondering how/where i access that archive if i need to hunt for something later
  • for my own understanding: i try to go thru every couple months and clean out my inbox, resulting in the deleting of hundreds of emails. does my 10K+ count mean that even tho i delete them from my inbox they are still on the server?

thanks for all you do

roberto

Hey Roberto!!!

Replying to https://id.mayfirst.org/mexterp:

  • taking yall up on your offer to move to another folder

This is done now.

  • wondering how/where i access that archive if i need to hunt for something later

The new folder is '.inbox-archive.2013-04-02' all of your old emails from your inbox will be stored in that folder.

  • for my own understanding: i try to go thru every couple months and clean out my inbox, resulting in the deleting of hundreds of emails. does my 10K+ count mean that even tho i delete them from my inbox they are still on the server?

I think this answer may depend on how your email client handles email deletion. In Thunderbird you have server settings that tell Thunderbird what to do with deleted messages, i.e. "Move to this folder." Then there are Message Storage options to tell Thuderbird how to store those deleted messages. You might need to tweak these settings to have your deleted messages actually removed from the server.

much love,
