If the webmail system is displaying messages which are quite clearly
marked as deleted, that's a bug in the webmail system.  If I delete a
message in Evolution (which then gets striked out as I have Hide Deleted
Message unchecked), when I view the same folder with Mutt the deleted
messages are marked as Pending Delete.  Exactly what is expected.  If
you want Evolution to really delete all pending messages when it quits,
select Empty Trash On Exit.

From a guess it sounds like the webmail client is resetting flags it
doesn't understand.  Again, the solution is to empty the Junk folder.
