      IMAP on iphone confusion

      Hi peeps, I've been using pop for a while without too many problems but thought I would be clever and switch to IMAP All seems to working reasonably ok but when I delete something on the iphone it seems to jump into the trash bin for about 20 seconds then disappears and re-appears in a bin called "All mail" I have to then go in there and delete it again to finally get it to move into the bin

      I am completely completely confused by the following settings :
      What the heck does "Auto-Expunge" mean?

      When I mark a message in IMAP as deleted:Auto-Expunge on - Immediately update the server. (default)
      Auto-Expunge off - Wait for the client to update the server.

      When a message is marked as deleted and expunged from the last visible IMAP folder:Archive the message (default)
      Move the message to the Bin
      Immediately delete the message forever

      Also does adding a foreign email address to the IMAP account i.e. "hotmail" slow the "mail push" process down?
      My Sky mail used to get "pushed" within about a minute of being send. But since since I have set up my sky email to access and download hotmail as well there seems to be about a 30 minute delay in messages coming through.

      Sorry for so many questions, and thanks in advance.
