On my machine expunge in evolution-2.28.2-1.fc12.i686 is no longer
working so the deleted messages are building up. What does one do in
this case to fix this problem?
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Expunge works in all the folders except Inbox, Junk and Trash.
Maybe it is not supposed to work in Trash.

Junk and Trash are virtual folders. Does Empty Trash work?

It's a known bug. [1]
I usually hit it once a week or so. (Including right now)
Make sure you backup your evolution directory before you follow these
instructions [2].

Yeah, I have no idea why this is taking years (literally) to fix. Its
like the Novell dev guys are purposely sabotaging Gnome users or
something. The first reports that I sent in of this problem were on
Fedora 4, and its still there and still biting an awful lot of users
over and over again.

See response #131 for a workaround in
https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=550414

Not only have I never seen this, I don't recall even hearing about it,
at least in these terms, despite being on the Evo list for lo these many
years. IOW I doubt it's all that common.

Be that as it may, one thing to try is to completely quit Evo
("evolution --force-shutdown") and run the following script, which
cleans up Evo's SQL databases:

#!/bin/sh

cd ~/.evolution/mail/
for i in `find . -name folders.db`
do
echo "Rebuilding Table $i"
sqlite3 $i "vacuum;"
done

BTW the OP didn't say whether his mail is on an IMAP server or not. This
could possibly be relevant.
