problem with evolution mail client

I am using evolution-1.2.2-4 on RH9.0

I am facing following problems with evolution :
1. when I delete any mail in the 'Inbox' it does not go to the 'Trash' immediately, instead it gets marked by a horizontal line over it and disappears from 'Inbox' only after I exit from evolution.

2. when I close/exit from evolution
2.1 it takes very long time (around 7-8minutes) to exit cleanly if I have deleted any mail in the 'Inbox' but
2.2 exits immediately if there is no deleted mail lying in the 'Inbox'. Right now my 'Inbox' size is around 112MB.

What can I do to resolve these problems?

Also, I have following questions :
1. how to take backup of the mails using evolution mail client?
2. what is the difference between 'Close' and 'Exit' from the 'File' menu?
