Apple's Mail app 10.5.8

How can you get rid of messages that simply won't delete? I've tried dumping them by just deleting, then I tried removing from the mbox folder too. I have 3-4 that just keep reappearing like a bad dream. The message areas are empty, but everything else just keeps showing up.
