Arudi Level 1 Level 1

I emptied my trash from the dock (click trashcan > enpty trash. The trash left the can and when i open trash (click can > open trash) there is no traxh listed there. It is empty.


When I open mail  and click on trash to open, there is a years worth of trash still there. I have preferences set for trash to empty in one month. I have an Imap account.


When I click the Finder menu, the 'secure empty trash' is grayed out. When I click on command > the trashcan, "empty trash securely" is grayed out.


I think when I empty trash, it should be gone from the trash account also, not just an empty trashcan??


Can I be helped?

Thanks, Arudi

Mail isn't emptied by the Trash can.

Just select all in the Mail Trash folder (⌘A) and hit delete.
