 There is a configure option called delete_level which ought to control this behavior. Here are the choices:
 delete_level = [ 0 | 1 | 2 | 3 ]

 0 - remove deleted and expired files. Note that with this choice

     threading may be screwed up if there are replies to deleted or
     expired messages and the archive is updated incrementally
 1 - remove message body

 2 - remove message body for deleted messages, leave expired messages  3 - leave all messages
