[sylpheed:35219] Cannot delete a folder from gui

Runnin Debian Linux, stable, compiled version of Sylpheed 3.1.4.

I currently have an old IMAP folder tree in my folders, but it is not
associated with an account.  I seem to be unable to remove said tree,
as well, with the usual method of right-click and selecting delete
(the delete option is not available). Any time I attempt to left-click
on a folder within, Sylpheed tells me it could not establish a
connection with the server.

I'm guessing that I had removed the account related to this, but the
tree did not get taken with it.

So all this said, how do I remove this folder tree so as I can get it
out of the way?

1. Select the root IMAP4 folder.
2. Select 'File - Mailbox - Remove mailbox' in the menu,

If the above doesn't work:

3. Quit Sylpheed.
4. editor ~/.sylpheed-2.0/folderlist.xml
5. Remove the unneeded block of <folder ...> ~ </folder>.
   <folder type="imap" name="..." ...>
       ...

...or not.  Once I did this, the client would seg fault every time I
sent a message, and I stopped being able to delete messages from
Inbox.  Thank goodness for backups....

[sylpheed:35223] Keep expired Usenet articles

Hello all,

Is it possible to configure Sylpheed to keep expired Usenet
articles?  It stores them in newscache but seems to clear it
from time to time, while I'd like to have an option not to
do it...

You could copy messages you want to keep into a new folder
(right click on message(s) > Copy...)

[sylpheed:35225] Re-edit vs. Redirect

How does Sylpheed decide whether or not to show Re-edit vs. Redirect?  I
sent an email three hours ago and expected to see Re-edit but it's not
there, while it is with some emails I sent last night.
3.2.0b7/Win7x64.  Thanks,

Gene

I should have said that it always shows Redirect.  The question is
how does it decide to show or not show Re-edit?

Oh, most certainly.  And I am even thinking of automated
backing up of the usenet cache folder, but what I really am
proposing is to add a little option to the NNTP account
properties that would allow to disable automatic deletion of
cache thereby making Sylpheed a better off-line Usenet
client...

[sylpheed:35228] Sylpheed is also a newsreader

Hello all,

I have seen a couple of times people not trying Sylpheed
because its being also a Usenet client is not readily
evident from the homepage.  They tried only upon my pointing
it out to them.  I propose to change its title to something
like:

  a.  Sylphed -- a lightweight and user-friendly e-mail
      client and newsreader.

  b.  Sylphed -- a lightweight e-mail and Usenet client.

Then, they couldn't find NNTP in the New Account wizard and
I had to tell them it should be configured in:

           Configuration -> Edit Accounts -> Add.

which I think should also be fixed.

I personally find the New Account wizard absolutely
redundant because it only duplicates part of the
functionality of the more convenient Account Properties
window.
