The best is hidden Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This add-on also compact all emptied Junk and Trash files in Thunderbird folder. If not, they can reach hundred of MB. To obtain this don't forget to cross "Also compact emptied folders" in the Empty 'em Options.
Works...sort of Rated 3 out of 5 stars
I often have to hit the empty 'em button 2 or 3 times before it will do what it says. Other than that, it seems to work
Please note that folders related to IMAP accounts are processed asynchronously. This might explain why you perceive the button as not responding.
Works Again Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I was having problems with this add-on working. I decided to delete it and reinstall it. It worked for me. You might try to reinstall it and see if it works for you. No harm in trying.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.90).
Doesn't work for me either Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Adds "EMPTY TRASH" to EVERY folder context menu. I don't see the benefit of this. If you want to empty trash, just go over there and empty it. Why have a context menu on folder DOG to empty the TRASH folder???? A context menu should apply to the context...hence the name. If I right click the DOG folder and select "empty" I want DOG emptied, not the TRASH folder. Maybe the thing does not work right for me, but that is what is does.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.90).
much better Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Looks much better now! Couple of minor issues: It reports NaN for the server count, and it isn't actually deleting anything anymore.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.80).
There have been some changes in the Thunderbird API which broke compatibility with TB19 and older. I've addressed the changes in a new pre-release if you want to try:
Helpful Addon Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Thank you very much, it is great that I now can delete my junk with just one click.
Just one request: Would it be possible to adjust the button text? It kind of annoys me, that there is "Empty Junk & Trash" written, although I only empty my junk... (I know I'm very perfectionist :) )
Awesomeness :) Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Awesome add-on. Only suggestion—make a slightly bigger icon for the toolbar. I know this is a picky suggestion, but I'm an artist and it would be slick to have all my toolbar buttons the same size.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.80).

Thank you so much for your reply. You are correct it works now with 7.0.1 ! Thank you again this is the best TB addon EVER.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.79). This user has 2 previous reviews of this add-on.
Still Wishing....... Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Not working in 7.0.1. Still refuses to empty g-mail trash. It pops up and says it dumped the trash on 2 servers, but it doesn't. I'm specifically interested in emptying the g-mail trash since TB won't remove the read mail from the server. Thanks for the valiant effort, but it ain't working for me.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.79). This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Thanks Eric. Your input helped me fix a bug in the add-on that potentially caused failure indicated in the previous two comments.

It won't work with version 5.0This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.785).
Hi Uinsin42, could you please report this at http://groups.google.com/group/empty-em-support ? Especially the types of accounts in your profile, and the output in 'Tools -> Error Console' when you click 'Empty all Junk and Trash folders' button. You can turn on verbose logging in Empty 'em preferences.
Finally! the much needed Delete All Trash & Junk button... Rated 5 out of 5 stars
It works perfectly on TB 3.1.9
It was about time some one came up with the idea to click 1 button and empty all the trash cans + junk boxes, I was getting tired of going into each account to manually remove each of them at a time for 50+ email accounts x2...
Nice... Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Current version 0.78 works perfectly in TB 3.1.7. Issues have obviously been fixed. This is damn useful. Only niggle is the pop-up telling you the job is done could be faster (it animates a little slowly) - but that is a very minor niggle! I use this constantly.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.78).

This worked great thank you... ( US English )This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.75).
Works wonderful. Rated 5 out of 5 stars
System info: Thunderbird 3.1.4 under Windows 7x64
The add-on works excellent. I don't know why the overall rating is so low. May be it's because of the early development problems. The 0.75 version works fine.
With the Facebook inability to fine-tune the e-mail notification options, only the spam filters and/or message rules can handle the e-mail overload. And if the Trash/Spam folders are not regularly emptied, you can easily miss some really important e-mail which ended in the trash.
The one button click emptying of the Trash is very useful feature.
Thank you developers.
