I cant move messages to any folder, including trash. Its an IMAP account, hosted at ICDSoft. Also, the setup screen where you can specify what folder will be used for Drafts, Trash, etc. doesnt show my folders as places to choose. I suspect this is all part of the same problem.
In these IMAP accounts all folders are sub-folders of INBOX, fwiw.

from another forum I found this bit
Go To
1. Settings
2. Mail, Contacts, Calendars
3. Click your (whatever account you have) account
4. Scroll down and click Advanced
5. Click Deleted Mailbox
6. Switch from Trash to Spam (at the bottom) then back to Trash at the top.
At first this didnt work for me. Then somewhere here I saw about creating folders on your imap webmail app. So I went to my webmail, created a folder, it was nothing special, just keepers. The funny thing was this email folder didnt come up in the iPads mailbox list. it was a subfolder of Inbox, and under Inbox, Inbox was listed. Anyway, once I had another folder, this trick about switching the deleted mailbox from Trash to that subfolder and then back again worked!!! I just deleted all the spam and facebook alerts. yay!

Yes, having the same problem with my Yahoo account on the iPad. I have just gone through a spring cleaning exercise of the yahoo inbox, and some messages, not all, cannot be deleted. In some cases, you can delete them later, say after using other apps forma while. Very frustrating and flaky.

Thought I would post an update since it now also happened on my iPhone, so I am wondering whether this is related to some caching problem for people like myself who have both Apple devices used for email.

Yup, thanks Michael, found that too and it does fix the problem... Now if I can just get Times Reader to stop crashing...

I have an SMTP mail account. Usually the delete works just fine, but recently I have four e-mails that I cant delete. I get the message, cant move to trash. I havent found any way to clear them. I have a POP account that has a different problem. I use to be able to delete just fine, but now it messages delete and then reappear.
