    It deletes the stuff on the email accounts on the net, but it wont delete stuff its downloaded onto my comp. I select it, and delete it, and then when I come back to the mail app, its there again. Ive tried the erase deleted mail option, but it still shows up the next time i got to the mail app. Any ideas what to do?

    Have you tried rebuilding the mailbox(es) in Mail?

    Highlight the mailbox(es) and select Mailbox-->Rebuild. The messages will disappear and reappear as the mailbox rebuilds. It might take a few minutes depending on how many messages it has to work through.
