DeleteMsgs is a Boolean function used to mark the specified messages in AMsgNumList for subsequent deletion when the mailbox is purged. DeleteMsgs calls StoreFlags to add the message flag value mfDeleted to the flags stored for the associated message on the IMAP4 server. 

A mailbox must be selected using the SelectMailBox method prior to calling DeleteMsgs, or an exception is raised when storing the message flags on the IMAP4 server. 

Use UIDDeleteMsgs to mark a list of messages for deletion using their unique identifiers. 

Use ExpungeMailBox to remove messages marked for deletion in the specified mailbox.
