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?
