This begs the question:
I use Kmail in 9.2. I've looked at Evolution and Thunderbird.

The last time I looked at those (kmail included) non of them were able
to leave a copy on the server and also delete off of server when deleted
locally, NOT moved to different folder.

e.g. I have a Saved folder that has subfolders for everything I want to
keep. I use my inbox like a to-do list, as I get through emails, I either
file them under Saved folder or trash them. I'd like a client that is
able to distinguish the difference. So when I move from inbox to Saved,
it will leave a copy on the server for my other clients, and when I
delete or move to trash a message that it will take just that one off of
the server.

Do you know if any of these clients can do that yet?

I would think Thunderbird would. I use Mozilla and when a message is
deleted off line, it is removed from the server, when run on line.


Yes, but it also considered "moved to saved" as deleted. e.g. Anything that was no longer in inbox was removed from the server. This would not work for me from the situation mentioned above. Does anyone know if this has gotten better?

Did you save to a local or shared folder? As an experiment, while off line, I moved your message to a shared folder. When I reconnected, it was moved on the server as well.
