Folder using Apple MAIL as IMAP
Posted on 2011-10-24
Hi all - I just switched from an open-source mail reader to Apple MAIL. I am confused about all the folders on the Left NAV bar ... I have 3 Mail Accounts (lets call them A, B, and C).
Moving down the Left NAV, I have Inbox with mail folders A & B & C ... all good so far.
THEN I have a SENT Folder with A & B & C subordinate to it ... again all good ... I want to store all folders on the Server, remember we're talking IMAP not POP email).
THEN I have a Single Trash Folder (all good) THEN I have my "On My MAc" Folder(s) (Still all good)
NOW I GET CONFUSED ... UNDER THAT I HAVE A FOLDER FOR "A" WITH ONE "TRASH" FOLDER AND ONE FOLDER LABELED "DELETED MESSAGES" ... THEN THE SAME FOR "B" AND FOR "C" ....SO COUNTING "TRASH" and "DELETED" FOLDERS (not sure what the difference is) I HAVE SEVEN (7) TRASH FOLDERS FOR MY 3 EMAIL ACCOUNTS.
Does anyone have the explanation why and/or how to change this? Or should I just ignore all these "Trash" bins?
(I have Apple MacBook Pro, Lion OS/X, Latest MAIL app)
