    Change from IMAP to POP3, if supported by the email server, and make sure that "Leave a copy of messages on the server" is checked.

    Otherwise, I wonder if changing where delete items goes, and unsubscribing the folder will work?



    Example is with Gmail and it's All Mail folder, but if not, can create a folder for the the same purpose.
