Trash folder can neither be emptied nor deleted, in German please

Asked by Administrator on 2009-09-08

Binary package hint: evolution

die SPAMs und unwichtigen emails müssen ständig gelöscht werden und landen im Ordner Muell.
Von Zeit zu Zeit muss der Ordner geleert werden.

die Funktion war immer sicher

jetzt bleibt der Ordner-Inhalt erhalten und die Fehlermeldung bestätigt es.

erst kam diese Fehlfunktion manchmal vor - jetzt gelingt die Leerung des Muell-Ordners nie mehr

kann es daran liegen, dass die Anzahl der insgesamt eingegangenen und aufgehobenen = gespeicherten emails zahlreicher geworden ist ?

können die Entwickler keine einstellbare overflow-Funktion einsetzen, um ältere aufgehobene und gespeicherte emails nur bei speziellen Suchfunktionen in einem sonst ruhenden Verzeichnis abzulegen, wie im Archiv im Keller ?

changing to a question since the bug is not in english

I'm trying to translate it (freely, not word-by-word):

Binary package hint: evolution

Spam and unimportant mail needs to be deleted all the time and is forwarded to the trash-folder [called "Müll" in German]. This folder has to be emptied from time to time.

This function has always been stable.

Now, the content of the trash-folder is not emptied, which is confirmed by an error message.

First, this error occurred irregularly ["sometimes"] - now it's completely impossible to empty the trash folder.

Could it be due to the fact that the number of recieved emails (as a whole, not just the deleted ones) raised?

Couldn't the developers use a configurable overflow-function to keep older mails in a special directory so that they appear only at special search functions - like an archive in the cellar?

I see two different topics in there: First, there seems to be a problem with the deletion of the trash folder (which could either be a bug or a user error) and second, something for the wishlist.

So I recommend "Administrator" to close this question and file a bug (for the wishlist) and a question (for the trash problem) to investigate whether this problem is a bug.

Thanks Thomas :)

There is a link for adding Wishlist item

There is already a bug-report about this but it got closed because it wasn't in English! Please could you copy&paste your translation into it

There is some way of "archiving" or deleting emails using a list of criteria such as age of email but i am not sure how to do that in Evolution.

Thanks and regards from
Tom :)
