Mail Tips:

Multiple Duplicate Drafts

Issues with multiple Drafts on server and duplicates in search results. Additionally it is good to turn off this folder for IMAP, particularly in larger accounts.

Log into the web interface and scroll down on the left, you may need to press the arrow to expand - select 'Manage labels'. From that page for 'All mail' setting - uncheck 'show in imap'.


Creating filters: From the web interface check the mail and press more. The selected mess will already have the senders email address. You can add attitional filtering if you want. Press ‘create filter with this result. Then you choose what to do with the message. You can select ‘Choose Label’ and that is basically a folder.
