    I used to have POP accounts and I recently changed them over to IMAP. Now I seem to have similar multiple entries in my clients mail boxes like Sent and Sent to or Deleted Items and Trash. I've tried to get my head around what is happening here by searching on Google but no one seems to have a real simple non technical explanation. At least I can't seem to get my head around why all this apparent duplication now exists and what I can do about it to clean up this confusing mess. Can someone please please provide me with a simple explanation or direct me to one. I want to get rid of the redundant clutter and understand why this is happening! This IMAP experience has not been a good one for me so far. I only tried it because I have several devices and email accounts and I was told this would keep everything in sync for me. I don't want to have to delete the same email 5 times on 5 different devices. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
