Are you talking about an MH mailbox or an IMAP account? Either way it
works for me.

On the same preferences page, (other/miscellaneous), where you have
the 'empty trash on exit' option checked, also set the 'Ask before
emptying trash' option. Make sure you have at least 1 message in the
trash folder and quit. Do you see the dialogue asking you to confirm
emptying trash?

It may also be useful to start Claws with --debug and paste the
output from the moment you hit quit.

with regards


It isn't worth a nickel to two guys like you or me, 
but to a collector it is worth a fortune
