I see that I didn't answer the 2nd part of your question-------how to avoid further accumulation of messages.  If you are still in the old email format, from the Inbox page go to Preferences>>>>Email>>>>>Composing.  There you will see the option to enable or disable the Sent folder feature.  You could also change the Deletion schedule for the Sent folder.

 

If you are in the new format there is no way to change the folders.  Except for the Trash and Spam folders, they will all keep messages indefinitely until you start deleting them.

Re: Deleting past e-mails

So when will there be a fix to the new email program to have auto delete back??  Having 13K emails now instead of 3K is ridiculous.  Why on earth would someone take this feature away with all the unnecessary emails one gets today??  Having my program continue to load all these emails each time plus using my storage is unacceptable.
