As far as I understand it, an "invalid" message is simply one in your
local mail folder whose existence Mew has not yet verified on the IMAP
server. Once Mew updates the folder containing the "invalid" message,
it's no longer invalid, and if you delete or refile the messages, the IMAP
server will be updated as well.
I guess I'm not clear on what you want...
