I'm using Thunderbird 1.5 (20051201). I wish that T-bird would allow
you to delete a news item header. I know you can't delete the message
itself (it's stored on the server). And I know I can set the view to
only display unread items, but that's not what I want. I want the item
to be expunged from my computer. I don't want it ever to be
able to be displayed, which means I don't want it stored in any file.
This is a work environment, and they routinely scan files on our
machines, and I don't want malicious/obscene/whatever stuff to remain
on my PC. When I used Free Agent as my news reader, simply pressing
Delete would delete the item. I don't see any reason why T-Bird
couldn't allow this. Thank you.
