Why is it that I can't delete emails in Mail? I'd delete an email on an account and it will go away but when I click on another account and click back to the old account, the "deleted" mail will reappear.
Yes my accounts are IMAP. But I closed Mail and launched it again hoping that when it launches, it will connect to the server again synchronize the deleted messages but the "deleted" messages keep on returning.
yes this is because if the application closes without connecting to the server to delete the messages Mail will undelete them. what you need to do is make sure your connection to your mail server works, and if it does, just wait until it makes it way through. if its always slow like this, it may make more sense to use POP.
Ok it works when I right click on the account and select erase deleted message. I just find it a little weird because I don't think I've ever needed to do this for Thunderbird. (I've recently switched back for Mail 3.0) So is there anyway I could retrieve those deleted messages again if I needed to?
