    I delete all of my Sent, Deleted emails when I quit mail. I did a search within Spotlight with my one friends that I email a lot, put his name in, and up popped 162 emails that I had sent to him since March 2008.

    How can these emails be deleted so they don't show up in Spotlight?

    Should I uncheck the boxes that say Store .... messages on the server? Regardless, this would not cause the emails to show up/not show up within Spotlight on my Mac, would it?

    I found the problem. If you go to your Mail account and click on Advanced, you can then select Don't keep copies of any messages and that will both delete and prevent further SENT emails for storing and/or showing up from within Spotlight.
