    How do I Save Deleted Messages Folder-Pegasus Mail v4.63

    How do I Save Deleted Messages-Pegasus Mail v4.63

    Hi,

    I searched   'save deleted messages' with no luck. 

    Peg will save until I close program.  What I am finding

    is that the Deleted mail folder disappears sometimes.

    And if I am not paying attention, I would delete and go oops

    and there is No Deleted Mail folder and no deleted messages

    to recover.

    Been using Peg for over 20 yrs , very happy, used to be able to

    see a Deleted message folder and refer to it to recover message

    deleted in the recent past.   

    Question:  Is there a way to tweek .ini or whatever in order to 

    Permantly KEEP a Delete Folder in play whether anything is in it or not???

    Life used to be simple.  Maybe its me, something I am not doing right or

    something Im doing wrong, either way.  This Snafu has bit me in the 

    gluteus maximus too many times to where I have to come in here to post

    my issue.  Also found it hard to believe there is no other posts on this subject

    anywhere in community or forum, am I the only one?   

    THANK YOU for all you do over the years, have always recommended 

    Pegasus to those who are looking for a quality mail client.

    Look forward to replies to fix this very important issue for me.

    Tools > Options > General Settings > Advanced settings

    Tick the "Deleted messages folder persists between sessions" option

    Problem Still exists,  box is always checked, but no Delete Folder showing???

    If you use multiple identities be sure that setting and the "Preserve deleted messages until Pegasus Mail closes" setting are configured the same in all of them.

    If the deleted messages was not maintained on last shut down it won't appear again until a new delete occurs. 

    I'm not aware of any problems with the deleted messages folder not being maintained between sessions which the lack of discussions on the subject reinforces.

    Finally, make sure you aren't holding down the Crtl key when confirming a delete.  It results in a delete without a save.

    Hi,

    Thank you again for any tips on this issue.

    Yes, multi identities for diff work environments, have been for years

    but I will DoubleCheck  ALL to make sure Box is checked on all.

    Yes, I understand your suggestions/directions.  Will follow up later to

    see if adjustments correct issues.

    This forum and its members are Fantastic, thanks again.
