What is the difference between Trash and Delted folders in Outlook 365

Last Modified: 2020-08-24
I would like to know what is the difference between the Trash and the Deleted folders in Outlook 365? I am using IMAP Protocol and when I delete emails it goes directly into the Trash instead of the Deleted folder as I was used to seeing where deleted emails go when I used the Outlook POP protocol. is this a normal behaviour? If I delete the trash folder , will the the email I will delete afterwards goes to the Deleted folder? Please advise.

Thank you,
