Set up icedove 60.9.0 32 bit, it loaded all the mail from server ok but won't let me delete any emails. Over 700 need deleting.

This is a first. How does delete work in icedove ?

I did it. Sort of. Pressing the delete button does nothing. The message has to be right clicked, move to local folders, deleted. rinse and repeat.

I don't know why the delete button won't work.

The delete key works here. Right-click on the account and choose "Settings" to take a look at the "Server settings". There is defined what to do "When I delete a message".

Thanks, that helps. I need to be careful not to delete emails from the server.
