That's correct. With pine you can set Offer-Expunge-On-Stayopen-Folders
and Offer-Expunge-On-Inbox to automatically expunge anything marked for
deletion from the server when you leave those folders. I'm not sure if
the delete marking of evolution will be recognised in pine or even if
the messages are marked on the server rather than just the client but
it's worth a shot. Alternatively, when you exit evolution at work should
it not expunge all deleted items? Evolution is just a mail client like
pine, trying to remotely access this client in order to manipulate
messages stored on the mail server is the wrong way to go about things.
You can either make sure your client at work expunges the mails from the
server or be able to get rid of or ignore them via whatever client you
use at home.
