What does "Compact folder" does for normal folder? It actually finally eliminates all deleted messages from the folder. That's exactly what it does for Trash folder, except in Trash folder there is nothing else than deleted messages.

Closing as NOTABUG

hi,Matej Cepl (mcepl@redhat.com)  
In fact,Compact folder only empty messages of first account.
If add another account,compact the trash of new added account will not empty the trash.
Please check it!

You really want that "Empty Trash" (or "Compact Folder") eliminates all emails from all trashes? Can you imagine what how many bug reports "TB removed my email from other Trash" we would get?

If you want to discuss this, I think you can go to bugzilla.mozilla.org.
