Deleted e-mails keep popping back into my Inbox

It has happended only twice in Tbird portable, but in the full fat version on two different computers miles apart I have the very anoying problem of Deleted e-mails from years gone by retruning into my Inbox though I had them deleted thoroughly. Is this a virus or what am I doing wrong. thank you for any help.

Regards D.F.

What e mail program do you have. I know that g-mail has an option online to delete mail upon download.
