    Hi All,
    in previous versions under Accounts -> Advanced we have the possibility to remove messages from server when deleted locally.

    Where is now this option?
    This is very annoying because you delete emails locally and you still have same emails on the server.

    Any idea?
    thanks a lot guys

    Use Mail -> Preferences -> Accounts and then click the 'Mailbox Behaviors' tab.
    The last option is for deleting messages in the Trash. Uncheck the 'store deleted messages on server' and specify how long to wait before deleting them. You have to do this for each mail account.

    Hope this helps,
