|Summary:||Deleting email should be more evident...|
|Product:||[Maemo Official Applications] Email||Reporter:||Tim Samoff <tim>|
|Status:||RESOLVED FIXED||QA Contact:||modest-bugs|
STEPS TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM: 1. Use IMAP account (haven't tested using POP3, so this could be the same). 2. Delete email (especially with the "bulk" delete feature) EXPECTED OUTCOME: It would be more helpful if emails that were deleted (either from the email itself, or from the bulk delete operation) could be "marked," either by being italicized, grayed-out, or _simply removed from the list_. ACTUAL OUTCOME: If, from and email, I click the delete icon and then quickly navigate back to my inbox, most times I will see the title of the email I just read and then deleted until the server can actually delete the email. If I do the bulk delete function (from the main menu), clicking Delete will take me back to my inbox where I can see all of the emails I just marked for deletion, until the server instigates the delete. REPRODUCIBILITY: Always. OTHER COMMENTS: This becomes even more important with a slow connection, since someone might try to delete the same email over and over without understanding that it has already been marked for deletion.
It would be interesting to know if this is a problem now, and if it's for more people. I'm not feeling it myself, and I'm a heavy email user in the N900.

This is good. However, I've seen instances where it doesn't always happen. Before closing the bug, would there be any way to put the functionality through any sort of optimization testing?
How it works in the PR1.1 I'm testing and my own nokia.com IMAP account is: - Select a bulk of emails for deletion. - Press "Delete" button. - Screen gets frozen for few seconds while the "wheel" is moving. Clearly the app is telling you to wait and you can't do much. - Then the list is refreshed and you can continue with your email reading. The deleted emails are gone. Resolving as FIXED. Please reopen this as a bug if you test this and are still unhappy.
The problem reported here should be fixed in the update released today for public: The Maemo5 update version 2.2009.51-1 (also called "PR1.1" sometimes). Please leave a comment if the problem is not fixed for you in this update version.
