There was an interesting discussion on the mailing list..   

> Hi
> The ability to permanently delete emails was, looking through the
archives, last discussed in 2008.  The solution offered was to use virtual
trash and then purge.
> That's not significantly different from going to a physical trash and
deleting emails and doesn't offer any finer control.
> What I'm looking for is either a button/drop-down on the current delete
button that permanently deletes the email similar to the way shift+ delete
works on desktop clients.
> This would allow me to delete emails on the fly whilst still keeping
those in trash I might wish to archive or undelete at a later date.

Jan's reply makes me think it is possible.
