    for the life of me, i can't delete the contents of the "junkmail" folder in mail.

    i select all, i move to the trash folder, i select empty trash. it seems like it worked, and then in a moment it's all back in my junk mail folder...

    am i missing something?

    Make sure that Mail is setup to remove messages from your POP server. This can be found in Preferences > Advanced. There is a checkbox that should be checked. Otherwise, the next time it fetches mail, you are going to have all the same messages as before.
