We’ve got a small problem where when using imap for our xtra accounts, since spark shifted to smx we are getting folders turning up that only appear when using imap. Logging into xtramail they are not there, using pop3 on our computers they do not exist. But on our android phones and iPads all our accounts have several lost folders, and one account today we’ve noticed has 16 lost and recovered folders.

Have spoken to spark on their chat who said it was a problem with ios which i don’t believe as it is happening on android as well

Wondering if anyone knows what would be doing this and how to get rid of these folders

If Spark have investigated, and think it's being caused by iOS, why don't you believe them?


What happens when you delete them?

You can’t delete the folders, have tried

It appeared when our accounts were transferred from yahoo to smx, at which time we only had android not iOS.

I don’t believe in the couple of minutes on chat that the person investigated anything

iOS mail is always buggy, I sometimes have emails in my Exchange account that will not mark as read or move to a folder no matter how many times I try.  Fix is to turn Mail off and on again under the respective account.  That gets things moving properly again until the next time.

Although it isn’t an iOS bug, or it wouldn’t happen on android, and just setting up one of the accounts on outlook as imap the folders exist in there too

That's not necessarily the case. It could be that it originated in iOS due to some mishap between iOS and IMAP and now it's just also showing on Android.
