When I read my e-mail and then delete it, the mail goes into the
trash - as I have selected in "Mail & Newsgroups Account Settings". goes into the ISP's mail trash, not mine on my Hard Drive.

The selector in "Mail & Newsgroups Account Settings" doesn't specify
which Trash Folder.

Is there some way to force this issue ?

If I want to go back and re-read or get something I later decide is
needed, I have to wait for the trash message to download (dial-up!).

Were it in MY trash, it would be immediately available.

Is there anything I can do about this ?

if you're using SM Mail, and if you're using pop access, then the
trash is on your own computer. Its either in the trash can for
your account, or it could be in the trash under Local Folders.

If you're using imap, then the trash is on the email server.

How would I know POP or IMAP ?

It must be IMAP...?

Edit, Mail & Newsgroups Account Settings, select the account, and
under Server Settings, at the top right, it will say Server Type.
What does it say after that?

Ahh..yes...what a twit...didn't see that.


Am I stuck with how it now works?

no, there is a way, but I don't know imap so you'll have to wait until
someone can help you. It has something to do with the settings under
that account. Something about downloading the messages to your
hard-drive aswell.

Well...thanks anyway.

Firstly, many ISP's offer both POP and IMAP access. With dialup, perhaps you would be better served with POP access, which downloads everything to your computer.

Still, with IMAP:

Edit>>Mail & Newsgroup Account Settings>>(account in question)>>Offline and Disk Space

Check the boxes for Offline use. Click the button for Select Folders.

Make sure Trash is selected.

Take SM offline, and those message should appear in your trash folder.
