Empty ‘em

This is a simple Thunderbird extension that empties all Junk and Trash folders. The extension provides a menu item (Tools -> Empty 'em) and a toolbar button to do so.

Background

In Thunderbird, I usually have around half-a-dozen email accounts set up. Most of them Gmail accounts. Very often, Gmail’s Junk filter catches tons of Junk email and populates the Junk folders in Thunderbird. After manually cleaning up the Inbox folders and deleting unwanted email, the Trash folders are also populated.

Manually going through all the Junk and Trash folders to empty them, is tedious.

That is what prompted me to write this extension. I hope someone out there finds it helpful too.
