I found this page with a Google search.  You can’t remove it but you can disable it.  This is a forum discussion so you will see more than one answer. 
 
Keep in mind that when you use an e-mail program, you don’t have access to almost all the settings and features on the actual web site.

You cannot delete the folder itself but you can delete the e-mails that are stored there.

As I said in my original reply to the question, I don’t know why that is.  What I didn’t say is that perhaps you can either delete the important folder or change GMail settings so that messages aren’t shown there at all. 

 

That’s a good question about what happens when you delete messages from trash.  the broader question is, since there is only one copy of any message in GMail, no matter how many folders you see it in, if you delete it from one folder, is it supposed to be deleted from all or be moved to trash?

Hi, do they go from the important folder when you delete them from trash? I have a couple of Gmail addresses here but I don’t get many messages through them so haven’t noticed any of what you are.

So why is it that when I delete e-mails from my Inbox, those same e-mails are still there in the Important folder?  I have had up to 3,000 e-mails in the Important folder before.

They aren’t two copies.  You are seeing the contents of the GMail server and you see the same message shown in two folders but there is really only one message.  And the message isn’t on your computer.  Only the headers are.  When you open the message to read it, that one message downloads to your computer.  When you close it and move to another message and open it, the last message you read disappears from your computer and the current one downloads.

I know it is not two e-mails.  I have never tried using the server with my
G-mail account.  I just know that I have two copies of every e-mail I
receive in Outlook.

Is this a gmail account?
If so then no, its not two emails, its one j that marks as a label for
important but there's only  one copy of  the email on the  server.

To Carolyn and Gene,

Yes, I have used shift delete several times.  In fact, I used that method
earlier, ate dinner, and just now checked the Draft folder; all the usual
e-mails are back in the folder.

I have also used Control-Shift-B to get to the address book, and the same
addresses are there as when I use Control-3.  I think I need to find out
where autocomplete addresses are stored.

I am using an IMAP account.  Also with Outlook, received e-mail is found in
the Inbox and then another folder called Important, so one has two copies of
received e-mails which can add up quite fast.

Veronica, have you tried Shift Delete for Drafts?

As for your contacts, have you tried Control+Shift+B to get to your address
book and go through them? HTH.

Hello Everyone,

 

I am using outlook 2013 on my windows 7 computer.  Whenever I delete the
items in the Draft folder, and I check the folder later, those same e-mails
have returned.  Is there any way to permanently delete the e-mails in the
Draft folder?

 

Another issue I have is that when I use Control-3 to read my contact list,
only about eight contacts are listed, and these are contacts I don't use
that often.  However, when I am sending an e-mail message and use Control-N,
contacts appear depending on which letter the contact started with.
When using this method, there are quite a few contacts that I would like to
delete, but I have not figured out a way to do so. 

 

I have had these issues for quite a while, and as I am quickly running out
of disk space, I am trying to delete as much as possible from my computer.
Thanks for any help.

 

Veronica
