Is this happening when you login to Hotmail and download your mails or do you have Hotmail sync to your mac?

I am using hotmail in a Apple mail app on iMac which has Sierra OS. It only happens on sent messages when I get 2 in the sent mailbox but the receiver only sees 1..

This is a glitch with the mail app, sorry but I don't have the solution.

Please try it once

choose Mail > Preferences, click Accounts, then click Mailbox Behaviors.

(Mail stores messages in the mailbox so you specify for each option. )


If you select a mailbox on the mail server, the messages are available when you use your email account on another computer. Mail selects the best mailbox for your account; before choosing a different server mailbox, check with your email account provider.
If you select an On My Mac mailbox, the messages are stored on your Mac and are available only there.

I hope it will be helpful for you.
