Default Courier IMAP - when does it delete deleted messages??

Hi, I'm currently using Courier POP3 and IMAP server, but what I can't understand is that when i 'delete' a message in my mail-client it gets marked for deletion but it never seems to be deleted... When is Courier IMAP supposed to delete it/or is there somewhere I can set this??

Try to mark your "deleted" mails and hit the del key on your keyboard.

Tried that, but nothing happends.. I'm wondering if there's supposed to be perhaps a cron-job or something that goes through users maildir and deletes messages marked for deletion, or how is it normaly done?

When using IMAP messages never get deleted right away. Depending on the client your using there are different ways to go about deleting IMAP message. With Outlook Express there is a Purge button, that button will delete the messages with a line through them. If you dont see the button go to View > Layout... > Custimize Toolbar > Purge

Almost all IMAP clients work this way.
