Sorry for intervene, since I don't have a solution, but a somewhat
similar situation with my outbox folder. I have one "official" outbox
folder, identified by its icon, and a second outbox folder with a
generic icon, meaning an icon without the blue arrow pointing out of
the box. Both outboxes show the same message to be sent.
If I right-click the additional outbox to delete it and select "remove
from list", it is in effect deleted from the list, but only for the
current Balsa session; it reappears as soon as I re-launch Balsa. If I
select "remove from list and disk" it also disappears, but the original
outbox becomes non-functional, with a Balsa message stating that it
cannot find the Outbox when I click over it, so I am forced to manually
re-create the outbox file and then back to the same situation of two
outboxes. The path of the original outbox is "/home/francisco/mail/
outbox". The path of the second is "/home/francisco/mail//outbox". Note
the additional "/" in the second outbox path. Using Nautilus, I
verified that there is only one outbox file; not even a hidden second
one. If I manually remove one of the "/" in the second outbox path,
nothing seems to happen. I part from the assumption that this problem
has the same root that the trash problem, so I though it would be
better to add this request here instead of starting a new thread.
Thanks in advance for any help.
