The imap resource (and kmail) ignore the two-step deletion process of imap
(mark as deleted first, expunge later). While it is not a big issue for a
single client, it can result in unexpected deletions with, if you e.g. rely on
the two-step deletion in a mail application on your mobile (e.g. k-9) while
Akonadi is running on a separate machine.
Akonadi could issue an EXPUNGE while you are marking mails as deleted on your
mobile, permanently deleting the messages.

The imap resource should avoid using EXPUNGE automatically and offer an option
to do it manually.

There is already an option in the config to auto-"compact" messages, but I'm
not sure what it does. AFAIK EXPUNGE is used by default.

Reproducible: Always
