Set your server to automatically purge Deleted Messages. They won't ever
use it to store mail again ;-)

I use IMAP and am very happy with Mutt's implementation. Deleted mail is
marked D and goes away only if I sync. Why should I flag to delete and not
want to delete that session? I will move it to another folder if it's for
reading later, and just delete and be done with it if it is read and there
is no action for it. I press $ <sync-mailbox> a LOT.
