Ah yes, I forgot about that... IIRC if you use filters to sort your mail,
it doesn't get deleted. (I know it's not the greatest solution, but it
always worked for 98% of my mail)

Well, it'd been about a year since I'd touched a GUI mail client ;)

You might also check Sylpheed-Claws. It's the bleeding edge branch. IIRC,
it's developed seperately from Sylpheed, but they merge changes between
the two regularly.

I can't believe it's so hard to find this feature in a Linux mail
client...Of course I've never really found a GUI client I liked anyways.
If I knew a language other than perl, I'd be temped to write my own.
