    Hi,

    I just notice that time machine is backing up those e-mails in trash and junk mail... Can I delete these mails forever? And how to do that?

    Thanks a lot.

    Place your mail directories/boxes into the exclusion list in Time Machine preferences. Then, when in the finder viewing those directories/mailboxes, activate TM and select the mailbox. Click the "action" button, the gear one next to quickview, and select "delete all backups of..."

    That will stop the backups and remove them from prior backups.
