Thank you, because you call "tip" what is an enormous bug to fix.
In Setup, to keep messages on the
server is implemented with REMOVE_MESSAGE=n. But, please look in
/usr/script/ You will find:

                if [ "${flush}" ] ; then
                        send "DELE $next"
                        expect *OK*

A stupid error; it should be:

                if [ "${flush}" = y ] ; then


I'd like to conclude with a positive statement, but I can't
