Is there a way to delete or empty out the trash folder for my email on the Droid?

This IMO is the weakest part of Android. Yes, it's annoying as all get out, and I think it annoys most people. How the OS has gotten this far without "Empty Trash" and "Select All" functions is really amazing. Don't the developers and testers get email themselves?
I gotta believe it happen eventually. But the more people express their frustration, the sooner it will happen.
Give us an "Empty Trash" button in the email client, please."

If you set your email up as imap instead of pop3 then as you delete the messages off of your home computer they'll get wiped from your Droid at the same time. Hope this helps.
Ive seen two possible solutions to this problem.
1) Periodically delete the account from your list of accounts and then create it again. This sucks as far as an annoyance but others have found that its a lot less time consuming than selecting each email.
2) Dump the stock POP3 email app that comes with the phone and get K9 Email App. It works 100X better and has 100's of personal settings and modifications over the original. Plus it has a "Select All" button.
