    I just recently setup my email on my HTC Evo using the stock email client. I use Google Apps for my email and setup the email using IMAP. Everything appears to be working correctly.

    However, tonight I noticed that the email client continues to create multiple 100+ folders called "inbox". When I click one of those folders there is nothing in the folder but it begins to download all the email that is on the server.

    It looks like each time I open the email client another inbox is automatically being created. I deleted the account and started over and the same thing happens multiple inboxes are starting to be created again.

    I decided I would delete the account in my stock mail client and recreated the account.

    When I did this I opened the mail client and there were two inboxes from the start. Then the next time I opened there were3, then 4 and so on...It appears that every time the client opens it generates a new inbox.

    Granted there is nothing in the inbox until I actually click and open the inbox when I do that the emails start downloading.

    Again, using the stock email client. Setting up IMAP, using Google Apps with my own business domain for the email service.

    Any ideas?

    I had this issue on my Droid, but not on my evo. I would have to assume it's a glitch on the phone since non one reported it. Deleting my mail and reinstalling didn't help. This issue would carry into the thrash folder as well. I would delete the mail and another a duplicate would pop up and i delete it again. Then my thrash folder would tell me there's mail there but in reality there isn't.

    The only thing I can suggest since no one else is reporting it is to take it back to sprint and have them look at it and maybe get it replaced.

    I am having this same problem with the multiple inboxes, and have tried everything I can think of to get rid of them. I have a Droid Incredible 2 with Verizon. The app seems to be the problem. Using the GMAIL mail app the problem does not occur.
