In the previous version of Webmail, emptying the trash did not bring 
up the trash folder. Having the "empty" trash folder open after the 
trash is emptied is useless: did the developers want to treat the user 
as if he or she were some paranoid skeptic who had to visually confirm 
that the trash folder was indeed empty? With a dialup modem connection 
this feature wastes considerable time.

I still don't get it.. why is this necessary? What's the relation
between "Empty trash" and "No you can't remain in the folder you were
in when you clicked the Empty trash function"?
How about all the pages where you can click 'Empty Trash' and you are 
not on either a mailbox/message screen?  i.e. folder screen, prefs 
screen, search screen, etc.  Where do you go then?



And we are not going to hack a solution where you would be returned to 
the current mailbox screen if clicking Empty Trash while on the 
mailbox page because then the Empty Trash button is acting different 
depending on some algorithim a user is not going to be able to figure 
out.  The Empty Trash button has to work the same no matter where the 
user is at.  And no-one has presented a better solution than what is 
currently coded.

Its a decent idea, but I still believe it makes more sense to end up 
in the mailbox where the messages were deleted.  I realize that 
mailbox should be empty, but what if an error occurs?  Then ending up 
in the trash mailbox may be desired.  In either case, ending up in the 
trash mailbox at least has some connection to the action the user 
clicked ('Empty *Trash*').  Redirecting to the default mailbox really 
has no connection with the action done.

You have the point, but then what is the reason for this preference anyway? :)

How many people are going to have a "default" mailbox other than INBOX?

I browsed through preference files today, and idea hit my head.



What about redirecting page according to:

// user default mailbox

$_prefs['mailbox'] = .........

the only sane solution is to dump the user in the mailbox page where 
we deleted the messages.  fixed in head and 4.1.0.

Steps to reproduce:

1) click Folders button in the menu.
2) click Empty Trash.
3) get random folder displayed after that.
It's not random - it's the last folder you visited.  What else do you 
suggest (and please don't say "go back to the page you were viewing 
when you clicked Empty Trash" because it's not that simple.)

I don't know if its related but if I click Fetch Mail while in my 
Inbox, and download messages, I get returned to a different folder.  I 
also find that from time to time if I use the navigation arrows in 
mailbox view, I'll jump from one folder to another.  So it seems like 
there is an index off by one somewhere, at least sometimes...
