Re: [VM] Make vm-save-and-expunge-folder use a trash can?

Thank you very much for this suggestion.

This solution is almost (but not quite) complete because you can't
delete anything in the trash folder. :-) Each time you press "D" in
the trash, another copy of the message gets appended. How do you
obtain the path to the current folder, so I can add if/then/else logic
to the function, e.g.,

if not viewing the trash folder
  bind "D" to vm-save-message-to-trash
  let "D" remain as an ordinary delete operation
end if
