(I didn't know the answer to any of these, I just searched around the setup/
Sounds like this has to do with:
OPTION: Read Message Folder
By virtue of specifying a folder name here, Alpine will be configured to
save all messages that you have read during a session into the designated
"read messages" folder. This allows you to more easily distinguish
between your really new email (in your INBOX) and those that you have
already read. Depending on how you define the "auto-move-read-messages"
setting, you may or may not be asked when you quit Alpine if you want
read messages to be moved to this folder. In either case, moving the
messages means they will be deleted from your INBOX.

what do you mean?

Have you set:
Initial Keystroke List = <Empty Value>
