Is the email actually moved into a different mailbox, simply been marked
as deleted, or expunged from the mailbox?

It can take a while depending on the size of your mailbox and whether
you are using mbox or IMAP.  There's no way to kick it, unfortunately.
The slowness is inherently a problem with the way Evolution stores its
data and how Beagle has to access it.  Restarting the daemon doesn't
help.  (And in fact actually hurts, because it has to recrawl all the
mail again.)

The Evo guys are working on a fix, however, and the backend hopefully
will be getting an overhaul soon.
