    Yes, I'm having the same problem. ...Clearly a bug that got through (which can be expected).

    I have yet to find a workaround.

    My mom is having the same EXACT problem with this - it started happening right before we got Leopard. (Intel Imac CD 20" with Leopard.) I've been unable to resolve it as well.

    Should one of you find a solution to this, please PM me.

    TIA

    To resolve this problem:

    Go to Mail.app > Preferences > Accounts > Mailbox behaviors, and uncheck "Move deleted messages to the Trash mailbox."

    It appears to have worked. Thank you so much for the instructions.
