Managing emails with IMAP account

I just started using IMAP email accounts in Outlook 2010.  When I delete an email or move the email to a new folder, it doesn't remove the email from the inbox list.  Instead, it just puts a line through it.  

This is really annoying.  After moving or deleting an email, I don't want to see it in my inbox anymore (I've now got hundreds).  

How do I get Outlook 2010 to remove the emails from my inbox list after moving or deleting them?

Thanks,
Darin

You need to purge the emails after deleting:
