Sometimes a signed value isn’t so bad after all

Screen capture of Leopard mail.app showing 4294967113 messages

Wonder if a signed integer value and a sanity check for <= 0 would have caught this case? (Mail.app on Leopard. BTW. Anyone know how to get Mail.app on Leopard to delete messages without moving them to the trash? command-delete moves to the trash, and doing a “Cut” takes a freakishly long amount of time.)

  1. Turn off “move deleted messages to the trash mailbox” for that account. Then mail is marked deleted in place. Then Mailbox – Erase Deleted Messages – Whatever is appropriate.

  2. I’ve already got them turned off :-(
