Nor I... the only solution that comes to mind which doesn't involve
programming something yourself is to switch to Mutt and drop fetchmail.
Mutt doesn't support the options you seek directly, but it would allow
you to set up macros that would do it for you. The action of opening
the folder in question can be hooked to trigger the macro, so it would
happen automatically. If you're willing to contemplate changing
mailreaders I'll show you how to do it.

This would be trickier I think. Can you describe the mechanism in more
detail (that is, the sequence of events leading up to mail being deleted
on the server)?
