This has to do with the way the Trash folder was used in previous
versions of IlohaMail. Instead of simply moving messages to the Trash,
it used to mark as deleted, copy to trash, then purge original. When
viewing the Trash, it shows you both messages marked as deleted as well
as those that aren't.
When you move messages, it does the reverse; copy, then mark as deleted
(IMAP actually doesn't have a "move" command). But because you can
see messages marked as deleted in the Trash, you still see the copy in
Anyway, this behavior will be changed in future releases.
