used your patch, and tested but i am not sure if i did the right



good : mails are now going to maildir cur after pop3 download
good : they are not going downloaded twice

as configured in thunderbird and working in a setup without virtual
plugin, it should be deleted from maildir cur ( server ) at deletion
from tb local inbox at pop3 reconnect

tbs shortest option for delete after x days is one day, cant wait this,
but i expect this working if option delete from server if deleted from
local inbox  ( after reconnect ) works

did i missconfig something?

Best Regards
