Perhaps the current RFC will give you some leads: http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3501

There is some contact information towards the end.

I have tried to send a Email to this adress.
The Emails was reflected.

The security leak is: the server side can delete Emails on my computer - Thunderbird 38.4.0 Email client.

It's a feature.
There is no "mails on your system" - only cache of what's on the server.

I think it should be changed...

The client side should be a backup of the server side.

If Emails are deleted by the user, they should be deleted on the server side and not vice versa.

Then you should use POP.

If you want the mail stored locally, yes (copies can also be left on the server if you want).

With IMAP, it resides on the server, so can be accessed and managed with multiple clients (desktop, phone, web etc.) and is just cached locally for performance.
