IMAP email - Outlook - email disappearing "suddenly"

I have my Outlook 2010 set up with IMAP to access my email across a PC and a phone. Only in the last few days, messages in the Deleted folder disappear "suddenly" as I am using Outlook. I have not done anything to clear out these messages. I have thoroughly checked my Outlook settings to ensure that messages in this folder being archived. They are not, and the Outlook Archive folder on my PC is empty. I have also checked all the settings for web email. My system is Windows 10 Pro 64, Fall Creators Update (1709). Windows and Outlook are both up to date with patches via Windows Update.
