In theory, that should fix it, but it's possible the server didn't do
the EXPUNGE because of the error. The logs would show what the MailMate
command was and how the server responded, and if the messages are still
there or not.

Because the error is that both flags are set, which is not permitted,
and which your server is enforcing (many servers ignore it). If you
reset one or both flags on the messages that have both, you immediately
fix the problem.
If you take the account off line now, then put it back on line, force a
resynchronization of all folders (including Deleted Messages), then
search for messages with both flags, are any messages found?
