Deleting E-Mail

Deleting unwanted messages makes it easier to see the new messages you receive and to keep track of messages to which you have already responded. When you delete an e-mail message, Mail simply moves it into the Trash mailbox. If you want to recover a deleted message, you just have to retrieve it from the Trash mailbox. To get rid of a message permanently, you need to open the Trash mailbox, select the message, and then click Delete. Mail automatically places e-mail messages in the Sent mailbox every time you send them. You’ll want to periodically open the Sent mailbox and delete messages so your mail account doesn’t get too large. You can also set account options to help you delete messages.

Delete Unwanted E-Mail

Click the unwanted e-mail.

To erase messages in the Trash mailbox, click the Mailbox menu, point to Erase Deleted Items, click In All Accounts or a specific account, and then click Erase.
