There's no "move" operation in IMAP, only "copy and then delete" (and
even then it usually stays in the mailbox until it's expunged), so the
mail will temporarily use double the space.

Again deleting to trash means copying + marking as deleted.

With newer quota code you can say for example that copying/saving to
Trash will allow to go 10MB over quota. This code won't be in Dovecot
v1.0 though, but you can get it as a patch:
