Account/Inbox/Trash folder

no idea what you are saying here as this makes no sense.

if you Expunge in INBOX (or whatever folder you deleted a message from),
it removes it from the server (and virtual Trash folder as well)

3: Deleting the items in the IMAP Account/Inbox/Trash folder

no need... and in fact can't. a message in the Trash folder is already
marked as Deleted.

4: Finally now I can / have to expunge the Inbox/Trash as well

eh? the message was completely wiped from the server at step 2...
