I don't think so.

I've had the same problem myself in the past.  I'm using Thunderbird now 
anyway, so haven't had to deal with it for a while, but I understand it is a 
client bug/feature/implementation-detail, and nothing to do with the server 

Some mail clients can be told to not display mails marked as 'Deleted', but 
Outlook isn't one of them AFAIK.  Eudora is another which can either display 
or hide the message..

A workaround for some clients is to get them to move a deleted mail to the 
trash, rather than just marking it as deleted.  But it's slower if used over a 
  low speed link :(
