    My external IMAP account is playing up in mail. the mails I have sent are no longer appearing in the main 'sent' folders, but are instead finding their way into sub-folders within the account inbox, and it seems to be creating new folders every couple of days.

    So, if you go into inbox - IMAP account inbox -, there's a drop down to subfolders as follows:
    deleted messagess
    drafts
    inbox
    deleted messages
    inbox
    deleted messages
    sent messages
    sent messages

    and on and on and on...

    Does anyone know why this is happening, and what I should do?

    Thanks in advance, emer.

    Looks like you need to change the IMAP folder separator character. You'll need to find out from your mail provider what this should be for Mail and then change it in Preferences.
