That's because when you delete an email it is only marked for deletion.
Your email isn't gone until you have expunged it. The Trash folder is
actually a vFolder.
I thought this was a bit weird at first, but I don't find it a problem.
If you don't want to see messages that are marked for deletion in your
(real) mail folders you can select View->Hide Deleted Messages.
