Double 'Inbox' showing

I'm wondering why each folder in my Fastmail is indicated twice when I go into any folder? For example, this is what I see in my Inbox:

http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/7514122444/

Or if the above link doesn't work:

Inbox No Messages

Delete More Actions Report Spam Refresh

This folder is empty

Delete More Actions Report Spam Refresh


Thank you.

It is impossible in this forum to add an attachment. You have to store it somewhere and post a link to it.

When you go into your Inbox (or any) folder, janusz, do you see the same as I indicate above?

a) I don't see any similar effect
b) the link above leads to the FM login screen, so it's of no use.

I suggest you take a screen dump and store it on a picture sharing site. You may wish to edit out any sensitive information, e.g. your userid if it's visible.

Why two bars above and below 'This folder is empty'?

That's a "feature," so that you have the various action links available at the top and bottom of your mailbox screen. It looks silly and redundant when the mailbox is empty or has only a few messages. But if you have a hundred messages displayed on the screen, it's nice to have the action bar at the bottom, so that you don't have to scroll all the way back to the top to find it.

Nothing is wrong. Send yourself an email and it will appear between those two sets of controls. Those controls (Delete, Report Spam, More Actions, Refresh) are shown both above and below your messages. You have no messages, so you see the warning about the empty folder.

When you log in to your account you will view your Inbox folder. You can view the contents of a different folder by selecting the name of the folder at the left. Click the subject of a message to view it.

Aha! I see now. That seems reasonable when you explain it like that. I only discovered Fastmail last night and this feature seemed redundant indeed. Now all is clear.

Many thanks, everyone, for your assistance. I'm much obliged.
