Then what is the option "POP3 account settings, Advanced, Remove from server
when deleted from 'Deleted Items'" used for? Doesn't that mean Outlook can
remove individual messages from the POP3 server?

This is currently only possible if you are able to install and configure
software on your mail server.  I presume that this isn't the case.  It's not
really a matter of our being unable or unwilling to implement such a thing.
It simply isn't possible because of the way the pop3 protocol operates.
