If you've thrown emails out, they've been marked as 'gone' so you don't
see them in the GUI any longer, but the original raw text may still be
in the files where mail is stored. Open your mail window, right-click
on each folder listed and select 'Compact this folder'. If there're any
lingering, hidden message texts, that should clear them out, one folder
at a time.
You need not do it one at a time. You can simply do File | Compact
folders and SeaMonkey (like Mozilla before it) will compact all the
folders under that account.
Or was there some important reason for doing it one... at... a... time?
War doesn't determine who's right, just who's left.
