Just a couple of general netiquette issues: When bringing up a new topic you 
shouldn't use the Reply command, and you should also use a more descriptive 
subject, such as "Mail deleted from IMAP server doesn't disappear".

What mail user agent are you using? Do the messages *appear* in the Trash 
folder? Messages, when deleted, are normally only marked as such and not 
really removed until they are expunged.
