    Ok, this is kind of an annoyance and I can't seem to find any answers online. My left column on Mail usually has 3 folders (inbox, sent, trash). That's how I like it.

    Every once in a while though, it creates a new folder under my email address. Why does this happen, and can I stop it?

    In case it helps, I only have 1 email address and it's a .me account. Also, I do send emails from my Mac, iPhone and occasionally www.me.com from a work PC. I don't know if that's relevant, I just wanted to get as many facts out there as I can.

    Click on that "Sent Messages" mailbox under your account, select "Mailbox" in the top menu, then "Use this Mailbox for" and "Sent". It should stop recreating it.
