I installed it, and it works beautifully, but *after* I've invoked it,
Thunderbird quits being able to delete messages and marking something
as junk doesn't move it to the junk folder, either.

Hi Ed, thanks for the report.

To understand this better, could you provide the following information:

* How many and what kind (IMAP/POP/Webmail) of accounts have you configured in Thunderbird?
* After invoking empty'em, does Thunderbird never delete/junk messages? Or is it only before the notification is generated? Sometimes, I have noticed that the notification is not generated for a long time after empty'em is invoked. I am not sure why that is.
* Do you see any error messages in the Error Console (Tools -> Error Console) when delete/junk action does not work?

I reinstalled empty'em and it hasn't jammed up today.

I've got seven email accounts, all POP configured.

The symptoms I was observing amounted to: empty'em would seem to run
and then later, if I tried to delete a post I'd read, or mark one as
either one would be ignored unless and until I re-started T-Bird.

I've just updated to 6.0.1 and will report any further problems if
they hit.
I'll also check the error console if the problem recurs.

Thank you.

OK. I'm now seeing the problem, and any attempt to delete a message
gets me:

Error: An error occurred executing the cmd_delete command:
