I recently had quite some trouble with KMail simply not deleting mails. Well, they did disappear only to reappear after the next sync with the IMAP server. Quite annoying and not intuitive to find out what was causing it.
In the end it turned out that I had set the trash folder to point to a not any more existing IMAP folder. Pointing it to something existing fixed the problem.

Nevertheless this is not particularly user-friendly or intuitive to just have the delete go without an error and then they just reappear after the next sync. So if anyone has a similiar problem - check the acount->advanced settings for the trash location.
