Duplicate Sent folders

Posted

Thunderbird has created a duplicate "Sent" folder for one of my accounts (gmail) that I can't get rid of. It's driving me nuts. I've tried deleting the account and restoring it but the duplicate reappears (see image). Anyone help..

I don't know if it's relevant, but since gmail (and outlook.com) automatically copy sent messages to Sent, you should uncheck 'Place a copy in' in the Copies & Folders section in Account Settings to avoid duplicates in Sent.
