    Not that I know of, but perhaps someone here can help you? What's the problem?

    Hi smolloy. It is strange that Evolution is the default email client on quite a few distros but there is no official support forum on the Evolution site. I am currently using Thunderbird and evaluating whether to move everything to Evolution or not.

    I have 14 email accounts that are all IMAP in Thunderbird. For some reason Evolution creates a separate Junk and Trash folder that takes up a lot of space. I don't need the Junk folder. Generally, the Trash folder is under Inbox with IMAP accounts and can be collapsed. Is there any way to get rid of those folders when creating an IMAP account in Evolution?

    I don't know about preventing them from being created, but I know you can go into the options for each account and set the trash and junk folders yourself. After that you can delete any other folders that were created.

    That may be clumsy, but it's what I do!

    I can't find any way to delete the Junk and Trash folders. At this point, that is the main reason to keep me from using Evolution.

    I thought I used right-click, then delete. Doesn't that work?

    I'll have a look when I get into work tomorrow to see how to delete folders. Hang in there.

    Taking out the Trash

    Okay, so I just went through to quadruple check that there wasn't some setting I'm missing to get rid of the unnecessary Junk folder and Duplicate trash folder for each imap account. Nothing. It is a great feature with Thunderbird that you can get at the config file and manually override defaults like this. Is there anything similar for Evolution?

    Maybe "linuxforums" should make an Evolution official forum
