  1. Hi,

    1) What would happen if user has a spacebar in his username? (“for” won’t work) You are missing -> “$var”

    2) What about other folders where messages have been flagged as deleted but have not been moved to Trash or Spam folders?

    1. I did not need flags, in my case deleted messages are moved into the trash. You will have to adjust the script.
