When I delete Junk Mail, it's a pretty sure thing that I don't want it in my mail file. As it stands now, Notes requires that I select the Junk Mail I want to delete, click delete, and confirm at the prompt. Then I have to go into the Trash, select the items I want to delete, click delete, and confirm at the prompt. I'd like to see the functionality of right clicking on the Junk Mail folder (veiw) with the option of "Empty Junk Mail" and have it be deleted once I confirm at the prompt "Are you sure?". The same feature would be nice on the Trash folder (veiw) as well.

I voted this down for two reasons.

There is a "Delete All" button in the Junk folder. This is located on the mail tool bar above the message list.

Secondly, beginning in 6.5 soft deletions are enabled by default and the default soft deletion expire time is 48 hours.

this means that all messages in your trash are automatically deleted after 48 hours.

Lastly, it doesn't matter if you remove the junk mail from your trash folder or not, it does not reduce your mail file size until the mail file is compacted.

Typically, compaction of all mail boxes (or databases in general) occurs via a program document on Friday night, Saturday, or Sunday.

What would be the point of removing junk from your trash after being aware of all of the variables outlined above?
