Comment (by stippi):

 At least with my GMX account, the situation has improved a lot since
 r40399. The read/new status is synced quite well. Mails are marked as
 deleted on the server if and only if you use Tracker to immediately delete
 the files, not move them to the Trash (Shift+Delete). If you first move
 them to the Trash and then empty the Trash, it won't work either. Also,
 the mails stay on the server, but with a /Deleted flag. In GMX, it means I
 will still see them in the inbox folder of the web interface, only striked
 through. All in all, I think the problems can only be fixed when IMAP is
 implemented as a dedicated file system. Otherwise the combination
 Tracker/Mail cannot work. The dedicated file system could fake the Trash
 folder at the root directory, which is where Tracker or Mail would want to
 move deleted mails. Moving deleted mails to another IMAP folder is a
 better solution IMHO, since it has the undo capability (regardless of
 whether in Haiku or via web interface), and it doesn't leave tons of
 "strike through" mails in the inbox.
