If you expunge just before quitting Evo, then as far as explicit deletes
go you're OK. However the backend still keeps filtering new mail, and
every filter rule which refiles messages in folders is actually copying
them and deleting the original, so we're back where we started.

This drove me crazy till I figured it out :-)

Really!  I leave the Evo background processes going nearly all the time
(i.e. I quit evo by clicking on the 'x' icon in the icon bar of the
window) and it doesn't filter mails after it has quit.  This is using
IMAP though - don't know about Exchange - wouldn't touch it with a barge

I also use IMAP. The behaviour I describe persisted over several
versions of Evo and stopped when I starting using --force-shutdown, so
it's either as I describe or an amazing coincidence.
