Hello, and welcome to JustAnswer.com!

My name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm here to help.

You'll need to login to your Gmail account online here, and delete the messages there. Then they won't reload when you open Mac Mail.

That should do it. If what I recommended doesn't help, or if you have additional questions, please let me know and we can continue troubleshooting.

Jesse, I've already been to that site but was unable to find anything that would enable me to clear all the messages in my account....James

While logged in online, select your Spam folder on the left. At the top, just above the list of messages, click the Select All option, and then th Delete Forever option above that.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
