    hi....when I download an attachment from an email, for e.g. an excel file, it goes to my downloads folder. ...all is good. Now, i also noticed it goes to a folder username/library/mail downloads/ excel file....

    I was not aware of this. is this by default? is there a way to not have files download to this folder? I only say this because i download a lot of large files that I send to home from home. They are already in my downloads folder when i save them. I dont want them also in the mail downloads folder creating double space

    pls help

    It is the default. Go to Mail -> Preferences -> General and make sure that "Remove unedited downloads:" is set to "When Mail Quits"
