Evolution trash


Heh simple question. I switched from Sylpheed to Evolution mail client, and i dunno how to delete messages. Fetchmail fetches them from the net, puts them in /var/spool/mail/nskl then evolution fetches them from there, and puts them in ~/mbox.
Now when i click the trash icon, or delete in evolution, the message in inbox gets crossed out, and appears in trash folder, and i selected "empty trash on exit" button, but the trash isn't emptied every time i exit. Only sometimes, and it leaves me with a bunch of crossed out messages in inbox that are very annoying.
So how do i force message deletion from inbox?
Thanks

Very simple:
In the menu toolbar: view - hide deleted messages
