OK, thanks.

A pity they can't be junked and replaced by the GPE apps as the default.

Personally, I *hate* web-based email: crummy editors, restricted 
facilities, lousy interfaces. Claws is not a bad substitute for Thunderbird.

I noticed that in the default mail app and wondered that functionality 
was provided: I'd never seen it in any mailer before; then it dawned on 
me that some people want to keep some mail locally and some remotely.

I'd agree, but I'd want to be able to defeat it as an option and set 
Delete to mean remove from both always.

I'd want precisely the opposite. Again the default mail app does this 
and has no way to keep mail from different accounts separate, which i 
find deeply confusing. But again, the facility should be there, switchable.
