Dovecot deleted-to-trash plugin (outlook delete to trash imap fix) on Centos (iredmail compatible)

The purpose of this deleted_to_trash-plugin is to fix behavior with IMAP clients (like outlook) that don’t work well with dovecot, specifically not copying deleted email to your Trash folder automatically. So, what this plugin does is fixing this behavior by copying deleted items to the Trash folder. The plugin needs to tell the difference between “move” and “delete” actions on the client side, since both actions mark the original email as deleted. For a “move” case, we don’t copy the email to the trash folder.
