imaplib seems to be a pretty low-level interface - you need to be quite
familiar with the protocol to find it useful. Nevertheless, using a packet
sniffer I could make some sense of IMAP ;-) At least enough to solve my task.
That's the code I'm using now to "delete" a message:
imapobject.store(num, 'FLAGS.SILENT', r"(\Deleted)")
where num is the message number as string.
