Two sets of folders

    When I blundered into WLM for XP, I liked it immediately. But, I probably
    didn't set it up correctly. Now I see that I have two sets of Drafts, Sent
    Items, and Deleted items folders. I mainly use the ones under 'Tom's Email'
    but I also have them under Storage Folders. I suspect it has something to do
    with what I previously had in OE.

    I would like to delete the ones in the Storage Folders but I don't see any
    way (right-click>delete) to do that. I guess I could do it from the windows
    Explorer in the Folder view.

    C:\Documents and Settings\Tom\Local Settings\Application
    Data\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail\Storage Folders

    Any problem with that?

    Any advice is appreciated.

    The Drafts and Sent items folders under Storage folders are used for
    newsgroup postings. The Deleted items folder under Storage folders
    is used for items deleted under Storage folders. You can't get rid
    of them, but you can hide them: [View >] Layout > Folder pane > Show
    storage folders.

    Don't do anything with files and folders in the file system - you'll
    foul up the database and give yourself lots of headaches. Do all
    your file manipulation in the program's user interface.

    I use the Drafts folder under Storage folder for safekeeping
    answers/instructions which may be useful for future references.
