Ubuntu 10.10 Evolution Mail Downloads to Deleted Box! Help!!

I just installed Ubuntu 10.10. When I download mail from the AOL server, however, it downloads to my Deleted Items box, and not to my Inbox. What do I do to correct this problem? I've searched this forum, and google, to no avail. Not sure about navigating this forum, since I'm a newbie, so I will appreciate emails here, and to my email address, which is

(Please give step by step instructions. One place said to rename the Inbox to Inbox.Old, but I can't figure out where to look to do that.)

Thank you.

Welcome to LQ!

I do not use Ubuntu. Which mail client are you using?

Btw, I suggest that you remove the personal email address. Your asking for problems. Most members prefer to keep communications within the forum so others can benefit.

FYI: I suggest that you look at 'How to Ask Questions the Smart Way' so in the future your queries provide information that will aid us in diagnosis of the problem.

Just a few links to aid you to gaining some understanding;

1 Linux Documentation Project
2 Rute Tutorial & Exposition
3 Linux Command Guide
4 Bash Beginners Guide
5 Bash Reference Manual
6 Advanced Bash-Scripting Guide
7 Linux Newbie Admin Guide
8 LinuxSelfHelp
9 Utimate Linux Newbie Guide

The above links and others can be found at 'Slackware-Links'. More than just SlackwareŽ links!

Since this is a new install, I'm guessing you don't have any filters created.

It's been a long time since my dailup days, but I think AOL back then was IMAP.

Is it possible that Evolution is marking the items as spam in error (I don't use Evolution much--don't like it, but I do have it set up on one machine)?

What are your configuration settings? (Do not include your login name and password.)
