I dont see *we* can do much about this. Since:
+ Its Thunderbird which is Expunging the folder, probably some settings
can be changed for it not to Expunge each time you delete. Am not sure
+ Evolution just marks it deleted. And does *not* Expunge it by default
(or does it based on the settings or user action), when deleted. And i
am sure this is quite like the behaviour users would be comfortable

Ofcourse, we can go on debating about which is the best way to do this.
But i dont see anything productive coming out of such a debate.
