    I have just switched from Thunderbird to Apple mail. I like it but I have one annoying issue I would like to solve.

    After having sent an email (Gmaill), I find the trash folder full of patial copies of the sent email, as if the client had saved the several "work in progress" emails and then trashed them.

    Sometimes I also find a copy of the last version of the sent email in the draft folder.

    How can I avoid this behavior that forces me to regularly clean these folders?

    Please note that I have left the original settings of the client while configuring the mail box.

    Any idea? Please advise.

    Thank you so much, Daniele

    I don't recall the specific steps to take off-hand, but you'll need to configure the Mail app to not sync the draft and trash folders.
