I recently posted a puzzlement with my E-Client

Because I had been messing with filters
most new mail[ mainly junk] now comes in and loads directly into the trash folder.
But hey what I good idea I am leaving it as it is!
I need only go through here to pick out the odd one or two to transfer elsewhere, and empty the folder straight away

So the new time saver - All mail direct to trash and pick out the juicy bits

So instead of going to inbox and deleating spam,you go to trash folder and send to inbox,what a great few seconds time saver.

Far better to have efficient junk filters and send suspect mail into a junk folder. Then you can search for what you call juicy bits. I would never recommend your method to anyone. Lots of people (me included) set their mail clients to delete the contents of the trash folder on closing.

Perhaps Peter, I should have ended the piece with a


Becuaw that is what was in my mind.

PS I am still figuring how to go back to normal.

you can simply delete the rule you created?

One would think so but it beat me everything stayed the same so then brute force is needed
Delete the program clean up and reinstall[Thunderbird]
It all came back as it was most mail going to Trash the odd one or two - including a test mail to myself going in the proper place [In Box]

The current version- it has come up still delivering mail to the trash box
I dare say it will come right eventually
So ticking off
