Now as I and others have commented the point of IMAp is that you
shouldn't have needed to download the messages in the first place. if
you intended them to be downloaded to a single device then you'd use
POP. But if you planned to read your (remote) mailbox using multiple
devices (aka phone/tablet) then you want them left on the IMAP server.
It seems TB can *also* download a *copy*.

Yes, I believe this copy is 1) for use in off-line mode and 2) for
faster indexing/searching.

Well to those of us that have the capability to be on-line with not just TB/PC
but with a variety of portable devices - phone, tablet - all the time, and
that's why we're using IMAP rather than POP, this is a bit irrelevant.

if you want to download for reading all your stuff off-line and to search
everything, then fine: use POP.

As it is I only download very specific messages to my file system where they are
managed by my dovecot server. Which is also IMAP accessible :-)
And has great indexing.
I just wish that my email tools could draw on the capabilities of dovecot's
indexing and search capabilities better.

The only thing that does, it seems, is Basil's suggestion that you
delete the whole TB account.

After disabling sync, I tried deleting an individual mailbox, that
worked fine.

What do you mean by "an individual mailbox"
Do you mean the whole account?
Do you mean all the message in INBOX?
What does "worked fine" mean?

A: Yes.
