comment Why does mutt retain deleted emails in view until you “sync your mailbox” using $?
I rather like the behavior because it allows me to do client filtering (not in Mutt, but others) to "pre-delete" messages I don't usually read, but once in a while want to know what's going on. If I don't care to read them, I just expunge and they go away

Just to add a note, for IMAP this is the protocol's expected behavior. Messages are marked for deletion, but not actually removed until expunged. The purpose is to reduce bandwidth to & from the IMAP server, though this is probably less necessary today than it was 15 years ago. In the last 10 years IMAP clients have increasingly adopted the behavior of moving a message to a Trash folder and immediately expunging or hiding messages marked for deletion from your view.

+1 I read this quote last week as well, and wondered if it would turn up here.

@Thor Thanks but I'm not looking to clear the scrollback, just to prevent elinks from writing to it.

I am launching with -a -A, and no one else is attached.
