Windows 7: Need help with WLM Storage folders

Need help with WLM Storage folders

This is the 3rd post I've made with regard to Windows Live Mail and I haven't had one response, so I don't know if it will do any good to post again or not.

On the left top you have your email account and beneath that is Inbox, Drafts, Sent, Junk, Delete.

Then I have the Storage Folders section. And under that I also have Sent, Drafts and Delete. It will not allow me to delete these duplicate folders. There was also a Junk folder in this section and it did allow me to delete that.

Am I supposed to have these duplicate folders under both the email account and the Storage folders? I thought those should only be up above under the account.

I'm trying to make sense of this Windows Live Mail and figure out how to use it but no one seems to be interested in giving me answers to any of my questions. Maybe they are too dumb for answers. But they are't dumb to me because I'm the one in the dark.
