In the same settings panel, you can find Server Settings and check for
"Clean up ("Expunge"> Inbox on Exit. This is not set by default I
believe, but only creates the overhead at the end of you session. I
never have experienced the immediate overhead after deleting before
setting this, so my belief is that it never has done immediate expunge.
