When I try to empty mail from any mailbox, I get this message:


'Cannot move message  (wxyz) to Trash--On my Mac.

286998.emix couldn't be copied to Messages because an item with the same name already exists.'


Before deleting an email, I can look in the Trash, and it's empty.

After deleteing, the one I'm trying to delete is now in the trash.


MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.3)
