Delete one or more message(s), then move into the Trash folder and select a
messgae, so it gets displayed in the lower end of the window. Now select Empty
Trash from the context menu: the trash gets deleted, but the message is still
visible in the lower part of the window.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Mail/News, delete one or more message from an account (tried on POP)
2. Move to the Trash folder, select a message
3. Empty Trash from the context menu opened by right menu click in the left pane

Actual Results:  
The message in the lower pane shouldn't be displayed anymore since it was deleted.

Expected Results:  
The lower pane should have been cleared and no message/text should be displayed.

I've checked also classic theme, and the outcome is the same.

Sorry for the spam again, but I've also checked the linux build (2003021008) and
it has the same behaviour. Platform->All?
This is probably similar to the IMAP Compact problem - no event generated.
(We need an event in case the trash is emptied from another window.)

I just downloaded and installed Mozilla 1.3 on a Mandrake Linux 9 system.  I
noticed that the trash folder didn't empty, but deleting specific messages from
the trash folder did in fact make them go away.

I found this bug and tried another test.  Attempted to empty trash folder when
NOT viewing the folder.  That didn't work either.  And in my original situation
I had a folder with two messages in it (so only one was in the view pane). 
Neither was emptied.

Today I'm not seeing the behavior I saw yesterday.  Sigh.  Sorry for the
redundant comment.

Bug 234932 was recently opened for the "IMAP Compact problem" -- I can't find an 
older one to dupe that to.  Neil, do you know of one?

No, I probably forgot to file one...

I see this with Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.8a)
Gecko/20040423 - IMAP acct.

Deleted files -> Trash, empty trash clears the display, compact, go to
a different folder and go back to Trash then they all redisplay (never
compacted/expunged).

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8a) Gecko/20040429

Also T/Bird version 7.0 (20040428)

POP3 mail.

Another problem that seems to be part of the same bug is:

1. Select a message in Trash.
2. Empty Trash.
3. Switch to another folder.
4. Switch back to Trash after more messages have been sent to Trash.
5. One of the new messages is selected, and displayed in the Preview Pane.

This only happens when Remember The Last Selected Message is checked. It seems
that the pointer to the currently selected message is not being unset/set to
null on Empty Trash (maybe doing this would clear the current message (when
Empty Trash is selected) in the Preview Pane as well?).

This is also seen in TB -- bug 252886.
