    Thunderbird Windows XP SP3, connecting to an IMAP mail server.
    Setting mail folder's Properties | Retention Policy | Delete messages
    older than to X days. If I set the that for the Junk folder the older
    than X days messages will be sent to th Trash folder (which is how I
    prefer it). However, for the folders I have created, and set similarly
    the older than X days messages are deleted outright without the
    intermediate step through the Trash folder. My question, is there a way
    to control that behavior? Through about:config or something else. I've
    done the usual searches without finding the answer.

    All the best, Timo
