I'm experiencing the exact same issue. Additionally, emails deleted from one device do not show as deleted on other devices. It's as though it isn't an IMAP account at all.
I posted my experience at https://discussions.apple.com/message/18709494#18709494 but I just wanted to reply here to let you know you're not alone. Wish I had an answer for you...it's extremely frustrating!

Same thing here. I have a godaddy IMAP email and the only place with the problem is on my macbook. Both my old 2011 macbook air and my new 2012 macbook air. Some problem. My androids and ipads do not have this problem. When I delete on those they are deleted.

Same issue. Godaddy IMAP email account. Mac OS X 10.7.4 iMac Early 2008. I thought Mail might have too many emails in inbox so I moved 2000 plus to an On My Mac folder reducing inbox to 609 emails, no help. Noticed in godaddy webmail in the Deleted Messages that the deleted emails are there 2,3 times depending how many times I have tried to delete and redelete emails. I guess I'll call godaddy to see if they have a solution.

I called godaddy and we were able to replicate the issue with tech support. Tech support refreshed/reset my mail account, and did not solve the issue. I was then asked to delete the email account and then recreate the same account with same password. And now it is working properly, for the time being. I would recommend calling in to godaddy so they can develop a "known issues" report to investigate this further. Another thing we noticed was a latency issue of deleting a message in Mail took about 3-4 minutes to propagate to godaddy webmail and be removed from webmail inbox.

Has anyone received a fix for this issue?
I am having the same problem.

I have talked with Go Daddy. I have talked with AppleCare. I have gone to see the Apple Geniuses. All multiple times. The Apple Genius even called Go Daddy tech support once when I was in the apple store. Everyone has ideas of what to do to fix it. Nothing works permanently. This is SOOOOOOO frustrating!
Has anyone figured this out yet? I'm going to see if I can copy this conversation and send it to Go Daddy. (Although Go Daddy techs sometimes say it's an Apple problem; and of course Apple reps say it's a Go Daddy problem.)

I am still having same issue - talked to godaddy they reset my account, it worked for a day, then they deleted and re-created my account and it worked for 3 days -
back to deleteing emails 5 times before they go away :/ I have a feeling its actually both companies faults haha - I think its how they work together because it seems to not be an issue with other accounts.
I am really tempted to switch email programs since i really dont knwo how to move away from godaddy- hope there is a fix soon!

I found a solution. I switched to Outlook. Works fine. I usually Love Apple products. But a fail with Mail.

I was going bonkers with this problem for months, but my IMAP accounts are functioning correctly now. Unfortunately, I did two things in rather fast succession, so I'm not really sure which one cured the problem. But here they both are FWIW:
Firstly, in Mail Preferences, under "Accounts", in the "Advanced" pane, I unchecked "Use IDLE command if the server supports it".
Then fairly soon after that, I upgraded to Mountain Lion.
Again, not sure which action cured the problem...but all my GoDaddy IMAP accounts are functioning perfectly now. (Oh man, I probably shouldn't have said that out loud, huh? <knocking wood>)
Hope one of those solutions helps you.

I'm already using Lion OX, so I tried unchecking the "Use IDLE command if the server supports it" the way that you did, bug00. In a manner of speaking, it worked: no emails came back because no emails came in -- not even new ones! So I had to check it again in order to get any emails.
Go Daddy told me they are aware of the problem and they are fixing it, but don't know when it will be fixed. (Sorry Torrey)
I am going to move one of my email accounts to another service (probably 1&1 which my husband uses). If that email address works fine, I'll find out what it will take to move my other domains (which have websites associated with them, so it may not be so easy...or may be too expensive if I have to reconstruct the websites.)
Final option: Join Tylerskis and change to Outlook.
Thanks everyone for your replies. Much appreciated!

Very sorry to hear that your new mail stopped coming in at all after unchecking the "Use IDLE command if the server supports it" preference. Strange, because having that item unchecked did not affect my incoming mail at all, in any of the 5 GoDaddy IMAP accounts that I changed. My accounts are all continuing to function perfectly with that unchecked, and no deleted emails have returned since the change.
Also, just for clarification, In my original reply I mentioned that I had upgraded to *Mountain* Lion (OS 10.8). I already had Lion, as you said you have now. So I was remarking that it's possible for me that my upgrade to *Mountain* Lion may have done something.

bugg00's fix of unchecking the "Use IDLE command if the server supports it" has worked for me since 8/17/12 when I read about it on the forum. I have had none of the problems reported by Marian33 with my goDaddy IMAP accounts. I have a godaddy domain that I am running two active mail accounts from. My fix reported above on 7/16/12 only lasted a few days. I am also running Mountain Lion. Thank you, bug00, let's hope the fix holds.

I'm sorry to hear that you haven't been able to resolve the issue as some of the others in the thread.
I'm not personally familiar with the issue that causes this, but since you said that someone at Go Daddy mentioned being aware of the issue, I'd like to try to research it by reviewing your account and speaking with whomever discussed it with you. Would you be comfortable replying here with one of the domain names in your account so I could find it and investigate?
Also, as much as I'd prefer you stay with Go Daddy for all your services, if you do choose to go elsewhere for email service, you should know that it's not difficult at all. There are records associated with every domain name that control what happens to email. They're called "MX Records", and you can edit them whenever you'd like - you'd just need to find out what your new provider's MX Records are. If and when you do need to make this change, we have a help article that explains how to edit your MX records - http://x.co/n7Ox - We also have Support staff you can call at any time for help if you'd prefer to speak with someone directly.
Good luck to you moving forward, and thanks for sticking with it.
