Using IMAP's seperate mark-for-deletion and purging features moves RC
toward feature completeness and helps anyone who runs a corporate mail
system with a full retention policy. We run modified IMAP servers with
the normal purge function replaced with a garbage collector; however,
it's far easier allowing the user to unflag messages still in the folder
than it is to manually pull them out of a hidden folder or archive database.
