Not sure if this will work or not but did you try "Erase deleted  
messages" under the Mailbox menu (or right/cmnd click on the Trash  
mailbox)?. When you delete messages from you inbox in Mail the  
messages are not actually deleted. They are moved to the Trash  
mailbox. Perhaps erasing the deleted messages will also remove them  
from the server? I'm just guessing so let me know if you try.
