I’ve had this issue for a while, since one of the Big Sur upgrades and it has persisted with my recent Monterey upgrade.
All emails coming into the Inbox are duplicated into the VIP mailbox.
If I delete any of them from the VIP mailbox, they are also deleted from the Inbox.
I have not chosen ANY “contact” as “VIP”. None of them show the VIP “star”.
Just for the heck of it, I made the status of one of the emails that was already in the VIP mailbox “VIP” (star now visible) and all the other duplicated emails in the VIP mailbox disappeared leaving only this one.
I then removed the VIP status on this one email and all the other “inbox” emails returned to the VIP mailbox.
How do I fix this frustrating issue so that no “inbox” emails are also automatically duplicated in the VIP mailbox?
MacBook Pro, Monterey 12.1, Mail ver. 15.0
I am trying to find out how to fix this issue because I do not want every incoming email to also be duplicated into the VIP mailbox. I have NO contacts/emails denoted as VIP.
