This behavior isn't on deletion, it's on moving a message.  If you move 
a message from the Inbox to Work folder, message will still be in the 
Inbox but marked as deleted and hidden (from Thunderbird).  The message 
will still be visible in Roundcube and other IMAP clients.  Is that the 
behavior you're experiencing in Entourage?  Because that seems weird.
