Breaking RFCs to get the functions you want is a *bad* idea.  What
happens if you get hit by a bus and someone else has to deal with the
issue, sees that the config is "broken" and "fixes" it.

You're much better off using a protocol which supports an immediate
delete from the server, like IMAP.  Unless, of course, the issue is with
a lack of disk space on the server.
