I was thinking about a possible plugin - call it maybe 'fake-delete or
something - that would move all messages that a user deletes to a hidden
folder in their maildir, for admin purposes... you could also use the
expire plugin to keep this from growing indefinitely.
But to prevent them from deleting them altogether? Why?
If you just want a read-only maildir, just do that - so only admins can
delete messages from protected accounts...
