Hello, we have a problem with purge method.
We are connecting to outlook.office365.com and when we receive email, then are calling "DeleteMessage(idx)" and then Purge. The exception after Purge method is "EXPUNGE failed (NO)."
I try UnselectFolder(true) - there no exception but the inbox are not cleared.
We have Rebex version 6.0.8232.0

From the client's side of view, the command is correct, see RFC 9051 (UID command).

I have also tried the UID EXPUNGE on our testing Exchange 2019 and it works fine:

Command: R00007 FETCH 1:3 (UID FLAGS)
Response: * 1 FETCH (UID 307533 FLAGS ())
Response: * 2 FETCH (UID 307544 FLAGS (\Deleted))
Response: * 3 FETCH (UID 307545 FLAGS ())
Response: R00007 OK FETCH completed.

Command: R00008 UID EXPUNGE 307544
Response: * 2 EXPUNGE
Response: * 5 EXISTS
Response: R00008 OK EXPUNGE completed.

Is it possible that the connected user has no permission to delete messages or modify the mailbox?

Can you please try to call the Imap.Purge() method with no arguments - this should remove all messages marked with \Delete flag from the mailbox. If this does not work as well, I would suggest you to search for a permission setting or similar configuration specific cause of the issue. You can also contact Microsoft's support to get more details why the server rejects to remove messages.

One more idea: you can also try to delete the message from OWA (Outlook Web Access/App) - it does not use IMAP - if you are not able to delete the message there (using the same user), it is definitely a permission-like issue.
