This mailbox has been in use for over a year, I'm attempting to archive it

There are a number of IMAP flags (see
http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc3501.html). One of them is the delete
state of the message. Under IMAP a deleted message is only removed

approach is potentially risky - while fetchmail won't mark mail as
deleted, the use of the expunge option means it will issue an expunge
command, removing any mail already marked for deletion.
