Outlookk 2007 line when deleting email

I have an IMAP account for Hotmail email setup in Outlook.  When I move the email to another folder, it draws a line through the email and I am unable to delete the email, which is causing me to have duplicate email.  How can I delete the file once a copy has been moved to another folder?

Does right click on IMAP folder show an option like "process headers" or "process mark headers"?
