I'm trying to delete emails from Mail (on my macbook pro) but I keep getting a message saying "Message can't be moved to trash. File exists"


How do I get around this.


many thanks

    Try rebuilding the mailboxes first, so that Mail's indexing is up to date. After that's done, try the deletion again.


    To rebuild the mailboxes, in Mail's menubar choose


    Mailbox > Rebuild


    (it's the last command in the menu)
