How do I disable the ANNOYING message box I get every time I want to send a message to the trash folder. Thunderbird keeps asking me if I want the message deleted to save disk space. This just started in the past week. I want my deleted messages to go to the trash folder and I will manage that folder. I can't seem to find anything in settings that lets me disable this option.

I just finished reading other people complaining about the popu to "purge deleted items"

I concur! in fact I find this so disgusting I am considering leaving thunderbird as a email client.

I reallly love that linux, mac, and windows ...no matter the OS I can get a same client, similiar experience (I use different laptops when as a tech repairing servers, to machines.

I have even myself had data lost, personal communications with family who died, things I quite cared about and (yes I have backups) but this push to make the client work better by limiting data, imposing order, and cleanliness is moronic..dangerous, and I do see that the quotas and options for data do not really work, this merely seems to help performance and keep most recent email but absolutely ruins any real longterm archiving (email is not meant to be longterm, or a "archive" ...I know I say this too) maybe we need to adjust software for the way people want it? the way people live? and not how we designate it to be used? (you do not like ,,write your own, I know).. if this trend to increase performance by cutting and crippling old email (what if I want 40 gig of email ?) .. maybe a better interface for holding, packaging and backing up, and restoring email?? heck a schedular to bump it out to google drive? I recently found a proggie that does this for my cellphone, contacts, sms, options, apps, which apps,,, gotta say that in thunderbird would be amazing? (restore from cloud backup, backup to cloud)?? I love thunderbird and hope some development can happen to smooth this out? Thankyou! (I used to try and use the gmail and yahoo folders like this also and leave only copies ,,,)

Thunderbird constantly asking if I want to compact my folders is one of the most annoying features of this mail client. I have looked across the internet for a solution, but thos that I find all say . . ."Go to Tools > Options > Advanced > General, then click on Config Editor" Etc Etc This option does not seem to be available in the latest version I am running - ver 78.6.0 - so I am wondering if there is another way to do this in the version I have. Thanks Julia C
