When I delete my mail...junk, trash or inbox, it doesn't

Customer Question

When I delete my mail...junk, trash or inbox, it doesn't move to trash. I close out mail & go back and the same mail is still in there. I shutdown & still nothing. I'm at work now, & don't have my macbook with me. I keep getting about 100 emails a day & I also want to fix it so that junk & trash automaticlly delete.
