I opened an IMAP account. I use Office 365 Outlook on my desktop and the Outlook App on my Android phone. When I delete e-mails on my phone, they disappear from the server. However, when I delete them on my desktop, they are only transferred to the Removed Items folder but not removed from the server and therefore re-appear on my phone.

 

Is this "as designed" or am I doing something wrong?
