I'm trying to understand your question. I think you're asking what
happens when a user trashes an e-mail from their client? AFAIK, it's
removed immediately, that's the point of IMAP. That's provided that they
have the client configured to do so, in TB I believe there's a setting
about that, what to do with deleted e-mails.
(Of course, on the server, you may want to backup all incoming e-mails for
this exact reason, to protect users from themselves.)
I think this behaviour would be defined in the IMAP specification. Bring
on the RFC's...
Or, maybe, I misunderstood the question :)
