After I use 'empty trash', all the mails in trash are removed, and I can see
none mail in the trash. But I find that the content and the size of the file
'Trash' don't change. How can I remove this mail from our disk actually?

emptying the trash empties the file and makes it 0 bytes. To reclaim disk
storage for other folders, you need to do a file | compact folders.

we have an auto compact - edit | preferences | offline & disk space | compact
folders when it will save over XX KB
