    Is the email server using the POP3 protocol? If so then you probably need to enable the "delete from server" option in the account settings as a delee only acts on the local copy.

    If using IMAP then mail remains on the remote server and a 'delete' should remove it immediately; anything else suggests a server-side problem that will require the attention of your email provider.
