AOL IMAP: Sent emails are being saved twice to imap folder

AOL IMAP: Sent emails are being saved twice to imap folder

Post by Christophe » Wed, 07 Oct 2009 06:04:32


Hi everyone,

My Question is:

Why, when I sent an email though my AOL Account though WLMD, current
version , through IMAP, when I click on the SENT FOLDER after sending an
emai to someone:

I see a BOLD copy of the email I just sent

and a GREY one?

What does each one symbolize?

and:

How can I get WLM to stop saving the emails twice I only want 1 copy to be
stored in the sent folder?

Are you virus scanning out-going emails?

No. That is turned off in Avast.

Should I uncheck SAVE COPY in sent folder, since the IMAP server prob has
its own rules for where to save things?

Turning off scanning in Avast is not effective.
Your Avast antivirus was probably installed with its default install option.
If so, uninstall it, then reinstall, but select 'custom' install, which then
allows you to unselect installing its troublesome email scanning module.

Avast has residual operative code even when the scanner is turned off.
You might need to 'configure' Avast to get rid, equivalent, I think, to
uninstall reinstall without email screening code.

Hi All,

Here is the weird thing,

I turned off, just screwing around with WLMD while I was waiting on a reply
and I went into options and UNCHECKED:

* SAVE COPY OF SENT EMAIL IN SENT FOLDER

and now its stopped doubling the sent emails, when I send an email out.

I guess because IMAP has its own options of where to save sent emails, you
really don't have to have the WLMD version of SAVE COPY OF EMAIL IN SENT
FODLER turned on cause, your not using WLM sent folder, your using your AOL
SENT FOLDER cause of how its configured under ACCOUNTS > IMAP tab.

hanks for reporting back.
Most of us here don't use IMAP, so the ins and outs of it
aren't as well known.
