Good evening. I use MailMate for all my business emails, and use Apple 
Mail for personal emails. Originally I was using Apple Mail for 
everything, but when I realized I needed to segregate business and 
personal, I used the “Import Accounts” function to move my business 
email over to MailMate.

Problem: under Apple Mail, I had set the IMAP server to delete messages 
in the “Trash” mailbox when a message > 30 days old. For business I 
need to keep those messages and manually archive them periodically. But 
MailMate has kept the server behavior which I set in the Apple Mail 
system, and I can’t find out how to change it from MailMate.

How can I change MailMate’s behavior to NOT delete “Trash” (or 
“Deleted Messages”) messages? I can’t find a setting or a terminal 
command (“defaults write com.freron.MailMate …”) anywhere in the
