Okay, so since we're talking options... why can't we just say this:
If there's a trash folder:
Move to trash folder
If there's not a trash folder:
Mark as deleted
Now, a user-preference (checkbox) will define whether to mark it as
"seen"/"read" or not. If it's checked, mark it read. If not, leave it
Is that not an option?
