Undelete bug

Undelete doesn't work if the email undeleted was filed into trash by Rules (Sieve) in the first place. It's moved in some sense; it momentarily disappears and then reappears.

Use case: I have some email sent to [entity+trash@alias.fastmail.domain]. Sieve sees the 'trash" and puts it in the trash. Occasionally there's something useful, so I go search for it. I undeleted something and was then about to empty the trash (well, a folder in the trash) when I realized that the email I had undeleted was still in the same folder in the trash. (It wasn't actually an important email, but I didn't want to delete it.)

If staff wants to look at it:

This is known behavior. The way to deal with messages like this is to move them to the desired folder rather than use undelete. Since the message was never in any other folder (sieve suppressed storing it in the Inbox or another folder as usual) the concept of reversing a delete is actually meaningless.

It would be nice if undelete was grayed out when focused on a message for which undelete is meaningless, but the way it works now is otherwise logical.
