Quite often, I can't delete messages from my inbox (tried all methods). It's a temporary condition, then later they can be deleted. But it happens often and is quite annoying and time consuming.

POP or IMAP account?

Does this occur only for one account or for any account?

When it fails, does nothing happen or is there some indication that it failed?

When this occurs, can you move the same message? The reason why I ask is moving combines copying and deleting in one action and it would be useful to know if the problem is just with the user interface.

It wouldn't hurt to see if the same problem occurs in safe mode (help -> restart with add-ons disabled).

- Any account.

- Nothing happens, no indication.

- I'll try moving the next time it happens.

Sorry to take so long getting back here. Moving the message works, right after I couldn't delete it. The issue is till present. I (sometimes) can't delete a message, then later I can.

How is the account set up, as POP or IMAP?
