I use mutt with an imap server. I've tied macros to specific keys that save messages to INBOX.trash, which effectively deletes them from the current folder. I go to the .trash folder and use 'D' to clean it out on a regular basis, sometimes finding one or two that I didn't want to delete. It requires folder hooks to change the underlying behavior for the 'd', '^d' and 'D' keys based on the current folder, but it works like a charm. The mutt site documents how to do most of this, but if you like, I can dig up my macros for you.
