Hello Riccardo,

Now using the latest version from the gnustep-nonfsf repository ... would like 
to resolve the POP3 issue first and then re-test the previously reported bugs,

Thanks for this. It appears that I find the advice above a little difficult to 

To me compacting is translated as 'Сжать' (#K) and results into removal of 
deleted messages which are shown in grey and italic however it does not make a 
connection to server to remove messages from there.

It is possible to tick the option 'compact mailbox when closing' and 'prompt 
before compacting a mailbox' (these appear untranslated) options in the 
Advanced section of settings, but there are no new prompts produced from this, 
for instance when exiting GNUMail. It is not clear how one may "close" a 
mailbox in a way that would trigger this prompt.

Not sure where the 'expunge on exit' setting is, I don't see it anywhere in 
GNUMail or in the Account settings.
