<p>You can set a different place where to store messages in your Draft folder and Sent folder in the <gui>Defaults</gui> section of the mail account editor (<guiseq><gui>Edit</gui><gui>Preferences</gui><gui>Mail Accounts</gui><gui style="button">Edit</gui><gui>Defaults</gui></guiseq>).</p>
<p>For remote account types (accounts such as IMAP) you can also set a Trash folder and Junk folder on the mail server so Evolution's local virtual folders will not be used for it, but folders on the mail server.</p>

<title>Two Trash folders shown for the same account</title>
<p>You may have created another Trash folder to hold all your deleted email messages. This can happen when you use another email client together with Evolution.</p>
<p>Evolution's <gui>Trash</gui> folder is a <link xref="mail-search-folders">Search folder</link>. It does not really exist but simply displays all the messages that are marked for deletion in any folders of that account.</p>
<title>Two Trash or Junk folders shown for the same account</title>
<p>If you use a remote mail account that also has Junk and/or Trash folders on the server you might face duplicated folders in Evolution.</p>
<p>You can easily tell the two Trash folders apart by looking at their icons. The Evolution <gui>Trash</gui> folder has a special icon whereas the other physical Trash folder looks like any other folder.</p>
<note style="tip"><p>Note that the <gui>Junk</gui> folder is also a search folder and may also appear twice.</p></note>
<p>By default, Evolution's <gui>Trash</gui> and <gui>Junk</gui> folders are <link xref="mail-search-folders">Search folders</link>. They do not really exist but simply display all the messages that are marked as junk or for deletion in any folders of that account.</p>
<p>In order to only use the folders for Junk and Trash on the mail server, select the corresponding <gui>Use a Real Folder</gui> option under <guiseq><gui>Edit</gui><gui>Preferences</gui><gui>Mail Accounts</gui><gui style="button">Edit</gui><gui>Defaults</gui></guiseq>. In this case, Evolution's local virtual folders will not be used.</p>
