This is normal IMAP behavior. IMAP sets 'flags' and when you delete an
e-mail, it's flagged as deleted. You can choose to 'compact' a folder
(file menu), right click on any folder and chose 'compact' or in Account
Settings, you can choose to 'expunge' on exit. Expunge is the normal
lingo for deleting messages that have 'delete flag set on'

IMAP servers don't generally have anything to do with Address Books.
Perhaps you need to tell us what kind of server you are dealing with.
Perhaps it is an LDAP Address Book that you need to add.
