Un eraseable junk mail

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
I have 4 mesages of junk mail with no header, no content, no nothing. I erase them from my inbox, but as soon as I leave the inbox and go back to it, the messages are back! So I delete them again and the same thing happens over and over again. And they're piling up in my trash each time I delete them. I empty the trash, and the STILL come back. It's extremely frustrating.

Does anyone have any ideas as to why?

    The possibly best way to remove them from the trash permantly would be to use Secure Empty Trash.

    Try deleting the message from the following location

    Home/Library/Mail/Mail Box in Question/JunkMail/Messages/ Put the messages into trash and secure empty trash

    Hopefully that will get rid of them also.

    Also you could try to do a cache clean as they may have some kind of link to some cache files.

    Also do a repair permissions for good measure and restart just to be sure.

    Hey thanks! That worked (going into my library) Hopefully I won't get annoying spam like that again.

    Great to hear it worked as it has for me a couple of times when I couldn't find some either.
