Using Trash with Mutt: Does it make sense?

view story

http://unix.stackexchange.com – I come from Thunderbird, which I found to be bloatware with spontaneous hick-ups using 20-40% of processing power, weak imap and local mailfolder handling and a constand 100-500MB of RAM use. But it moved every deleted message to the trash folder instead of purging directly. Since I’m unsure if you really need that (mutt has the “marked deleted” stage), are there any experienced mutt users that can answer? Especially: Have you experienced loss of mail you first thought was unnecessary to archive but was not and gone? I normally don’t double-check before purging. Do you? (Statement as (HowTos)
