Technically, it's necessary on many mail clients (delete flags a message
as not wanted, and actually removing it is a second function).  But some
mail clients have a default of doing both both actions together, or
automatically purging/expunging periodically.  I don't recall what the
default is for Evolution, but you can set it to do that, itself, daily,
weekly, etc.

[tim at localhost ~]$ uname -r

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.  I
read messages from the public lists.
