I've searched the forums and I've found solutions to related questions but I can't seem to get them to work for my case. Sophos has found about 10 bad files backed up in time machine for some of my mail boxes. Here's the full path to the first file (where i've **** out my email address):
However, the folder /Users/greg/Library/Mail/*******/INBOX/Trash.imapm
Can someone please give me a step by step guide how to delete that file? I'll then try it on the rest.

This implies that you're using an IMAP account -- with IMAP, the data is usually left on the server, and accessed on-demand. It appears that Apple is actually copying stuff thrown in the trash to a local store when it is deleted from the IMAP server.
Easiest way to delete that file is to empty Mail.app's Trash folder.
