KMail + Gnubiff

I am currently using Thunderbird and Gnubiff as a mail notifier. I'd 
like to switch to KMail but noticed that KMail does not handle deletions 
in the same way:

Gnubiff lives on the Gnome panel. It is set to watche my IMAP mailbox 
and displays new emails in a pop-up. When a message is deleted in 
Thunderbird, it will not be listed by Gnubiff next time it refreshes.

If I delete the message in KMail, or Evolution for that matter, Gnubiff 
will continue to show this message as new mail. That means I would have 
manually to mark the Gnubiff mailbox as 'read'.

My guess is that KMail (and Evolution) just mark a message as deleted 
while Thunderbird actually moves it to a Trash folder?

Any suggestions for a work-around?

I know KMail has a mail notifier, too. But a) I prefer the way how 
Gnubiff works and b) the number of unread messages displayed by the 
KMail taskbar icon is not correct (it includes deleted, unread messages).
