That's not correct. To deliver you really need to add "deliver", "delete"
on the other hand is pretty much redundant because it will always be
overridden, for example if you state "deliver delete" it will be
delivered and if you state "store delete" it will be stored. It doesn't
make sense to use "delete" in combination with anything else, maybe it
was added just as alternative for those who don't want anything done with
the mail - that is not delivered, stored or anything else. I think it
adds confusion and little use.
