I discard some messages without reading them. After deleting said messages, however, I am soon alerted to the presence of unread mail in my trash can.
Is there a way to either:
- disable the alert (
set beep_new) when a new message is found in the trash can; or
- simultaneously mark a message as read and delete it?
I imagine the former could be implemented with a trash folder hook and the latter could be implemented using a macro. However, in the case of the latter, after marking a message (
Wn) or entire thread (
^R) as read, the selected entry may or may not change, depending on the position of the message in the folder.
One must then use a conditional to determine how to restore the selection by use of the entry navigation commands. After restoring the selection, the message can be deleted. According to the official documentation, the configuration files do not support conditionals, so a macro-based solution might involve piping through a shell script.
Perhaps there is a simpler solution to this problem that I have overlooked?
