    Mail
    Is there a way to delete or remove or even just move the Archive folder and the VIP's folder. I need the space to see all my mailboxes that I actively use. Just being able to move the darn things would be okay but I'll take a complete delete too.

    191 views and not a single suggestion on how to get rid of a mailbox(VIP's) or a folder(Archive) that I don't want or use and never asked for. Not even a way to move them out of the way? REALLY! Come on, give me a break.

    Specs:
    iMac 2010 27" QuadI7 OSX10.11, iMac 2008 OSX10.11, MBP Late2011OSX10.11 , iPhone 3GS Note 8!
    I have never tried to delete the Archive one as it seems to be part of Mail but will see what I can find and get back to you.

    What is this VIP folder? Never seen that before.

    Read this whole thread. People are saying do NOT delete the Archive folder as it will cause other issues.

    That was what I figured but searched to be sure.

    This should help you on the VIP folder. I had never used it.

    I have no idea what the VIP's maibox, not folder is. It just popped up. I'm thinking I may have "something" "somewhere" that never used it before upgrading to this OS version. But what triggered it or how to get rid of it I don't know.

    Then how do I move it to an area out of my way. I need all the viewable first page space I can get.
