Turn off "auto empty trash" in Opera Mail

In Thunderbird for example there is an option for Empty Trash on Exit.
Which I have disabled as I want to keep my trash.

However, since using Opera Mail within the Opera Browser, I have noticed that my trash is being emptied regularly.

Just wondering if there is a similar option in Opera Mail that would cause this.
I looked around, but unable to find a solution.

edit: This is used in an office environment, with multiple people using the same email address using IMAP

Thanks

Hello hcmustard,

There is no feature to delete Trash on exit in Opera.  Check if you have a mail rule deleting Trash.

Also, check if you a program deleting Trash on restart of computer.

Hope this helps!

sorry, just trying to close the question so it stops sending me emails about it.
I'm not currently using opera, I don't have a program or mail rule that would empty trash on exit or restart. Its in an office environment and we use imap so it could be a number of different computers/programs.
Should I just use Accept as Solution to close the topic now?

hcmustard, I do not know why Opera is auto deleting your trash.

No, you do not have to accept a comment to close.  Let the process here run and question will delete in 2-3 days.

not necessarily opera.  I just couldn't find any info on it else where, so I figured I would ask here, as I have used experts-exchange to find solutions for other things already posted before.
It most likely is on another PC. Most of us use Thunderbird, and its setup as IMAP and we share an email address. At one point it was someone who had that option to delete trash in Thunderbird.

Everything seemed to be fine since then, until I noticed trash getting deleted again. Only thing I knew that changed was that someone changed to Opera mail, so figured I would check for an option like that in Opera.

But as you say there is no option for it in Opera so that's not it. So yes technically my question was answered and will accept it.

I will poke around and see if I can figure out whos client is deleted the trash.

Thanks
