Xpunge is an extension that allows the user to empty the trash folder and compact folders in multiple accounts with a single action. Thunderbird offers these two operations for a single account through separate entries in the File menu ("File -> Empty Trash" and "File -> Compact Folders"). When multiple accounts are set up, repeating the same steps for each account can become quite tedious.
This is where Xpunge comes in, combining the two actions (emptying the trash folder and compacting folders) in the convenience of a single button. It actually introduces two new buttons on the main toolbar, one used to process a single account and one used to simultaneously process multiple accounts, all done with just a single mouse click in each case.
Xpunge works on all types of Thunderbird accounts, including IMAP email accounts.
Empties the Trash folder and compacts folders in multiple Thunderbird accounts.
Note: The Xpunge add-on is cross-platform and it works on Mac OS X, Windows and Linux.
