Deleted Messages Still in my Inbox ...

by vja4Him_57 / April 18, 2013 1:38 AM PDT

Delete Messages in Mail are still in my Inbox! They are Grey, but I can still open them.

Also, Filtered Messages are still in my Inbox.

I have never seen this happen before.

How can I fix this Problem?

The inbox of what app?

And is this still on the email server?

For example, my deleted emails are still on my google email account when I look for them with a web browser. So not only do I have to delete them on my email app (you should reveal which one) but I may have to go to the email server via a web page to really dust them off.

I checked the Server. The Deleted Messages were still on the Server.

I deleted those Messages from the Server, but they still showed up in my Inbox. So I had to choose, "Erase Deleted Items in Selected Mailbox," from the "Mailbox Menu."

I never had to do this before. This is a strange behavior ....

Sorry but I can't look into this any deeper. However.
