  2. Though I know WLM is dated (needs updates, patches, etc), I would recommend trying Thunderbird again or looking into another email client. If you're on Windows 10 there is the built in Mail client. Thunderbird will also auto configure settings for Gmail for you, along with other services.

  3. It sounds like it does. Not really a surprise when it comes to Comcast.

    Have you considered a Gmail account? Even if it's to test and see if it works in a similar nature with your email client?

    A search of Comcast's instructions on IMAP account clearly says that EMAILS DELETED FROM YOUR EMAIL CLIENT WILL NOT BE DELETED FROM THE SERVER and there is no setting to counter this property.

    This point of reference, which means that this is not normal IMAP behaviour. Those emails should be deleted/moved to trash and auto deleted within a set period of time.

    It is correct that with IMAP emails you receive are also stored on the email server. When you delete an email it gets deleted from both the client and server (moved to Trash and deleted within x days).

    Even per the Wikipedia article about IMAP


    E-mail clients using IMAP generally leave messages on the server until the user explicitly deletes them.


    If I do a test email via Outlook 2016, then delete it in Outlook, the message is moved to the Trash bin in Outlook and on the server, which later is automatically deleted.

    I've not had any IMAP issues with Outlook 2016 or Thunderbird. This includes IMAP for Lunarsoft, Gmail, and Hotmail accounts.
