    Are you sure you didn't put it in itself and empty it?

    What kind of mail account are you using?

    see if in your account preferences your mailbox behavior are set to "move deleted messages to a separate folder", email yourself something, delete the message, and then see if the trashcan reappears

    It's back... quite strange. Didn't do anything either. Thanks for the advice, though.

    Could someone lock the thread? Thanks.

    Maybe it had to leave for a bit to take out the trash?

    I think I figured it out. For folks running Yosemite, right click on the Inbox icon. At the bottom of the contextual menu that pops up, choose, “Get Account Info”. A new window will open called “Account Info”. At the top of the window is a drop down list of all your email accounts. Under that drop down list are four tabs. Choose the second one, “Mailbox behaviors”. There are four mailboxes listed, drafts, sent, junk, and trash. YOu will be looking at the Trash section. Go through each email account. If the option to “Store deleted messages on the server" appears, UNCHECK that box. Then close the little window. Your trash can should reappear.
