I deleted the trash and my mail was still downloaded in my POP3 account with another program. Its very puzzling.

Doesn't Gmail store copies of messages in the Trash folder for 30 days? If so, maybe that's the source.

Take care. Mike. Sent from my iBarstool. Go dodgers!

Subject: [TechTalk] A puzzling behavior in an IMAP account

I just started playing around with my Gmail account set up as IMAP in one
e-mail program, the latest version of Thunderbird portable. I have it set
to delete messages from the inbox when I delete messages from my computer
and, as far as I can see, from the GMail inbox. But when I run another
e-mail program, Windows Live Mail, the messages download there even though
the GMail web interface shows the inbox to be empty. So where is GMail
downloading the messages from?
