Evolution's solution to cleaning out the trash may be a bit harsh for some.

Here is the way I do it and keep 2 months of old messaages.

a) create a new folder (I call mine trashSave)

b) delete all old sent messages over 2 months (optional but a good thing for me)

c) go into the trash folder and highlight all messages less than 2 months
then MOVE them to your trashSave

d) clean the trash out

e) go to trashSave and delete everything

You now have 2 months of
a) saved sent email
b) all input email

in separate folders as you should.
