It deletes the stuff on the email accounts on the net, but it wont delete stuff its downloaded onto my comp. I select it, and delete it, and then when I come back to the mail app, its there again. Ive tried the erase deleted mail option, but it still shows up the next time i got to the mail app. Any ideas what to do?

I went to the email accounts on my browser, and cleaned em up there. Once I did that, I've been able to maintain em on the mail app, the stuff deletes properly and everything. Not sure why exactly they wouldn't delete before, but now they seem to without a problem.
