It is a very good idea to keep your mailbox clean and organized. One way
to keep it running well is to empty out your deleted items on a regular
You may not know this, but just hitting "delete" after reading
a message does not delete it from your mailbox. This simply moves the
message to a folder called "Deleted Items". They will sit there
until you delete them.
Emptying this folder is very easy to do. Just select the folder and "right-click"
your mouse on it. You will get a little menu with several choices, one of which is to empty your deleted items. Choose that and you are
all set. This will keep your mailbox size down and will probably help
it load up faster when you log in.
