    I have been using my current email accounts for a long time and never made time to tidy things up. Today when I took a look at things in Mail it is a real mess. My IMAP account appears to have a 'Deleted Messages' folder and a 'Trash' folder one used by my phone, the other by my computer. In the same way, I have a 'Sent' folder and a 'Sent Messages' folder. How do I get both devices using the same one, so I can safely delete the other?

    I would first go to the web portal for each IMAP or Exchange account and clean up there. Those changes will be reflected in all clients connected as IMAP or Exchange.

    Do you have any POP accounts? If so, can they be set up as IMAP?
