    OSX Spotlight still showing deleted email
    I just typed a few characters in spotlight and a very old email showed up. I clicked it and it opened the and the email is still there in a freestanding box. I am unable to delete it however. This email was sent via icloud. I have tried several things. rebuilding mailbox. deleting and adding the account back into the rebuilding spotlight. nothing.

    Can anyone please help me get rid of this email? I would really appreciate it!

    Not an iCloud genius so just guessing. Can it be deleted from the iCoud site?
    Did you know these forums are soon to be shut down?
