Microsoft email issues with Mac computer

Have got a Mac Book Pro computer, every time I use my Microsoft Hotmail email address on the Mac it duplicates the sent items in the sent box. I have read that this is a common problem within the Apple community. It only seems to happen on an IMAP account and not on a POP account, as I dont have this problem with another address. On contacting Apple they claim they have no prior knowledge of this proble. Is there anyway this could be fixed or is this unfixable problem? 


I hope someone can help me although it isnt a huge problem it is more annoying and causes me to have to delete my sent items on a much more regular basis.


I look forward to hearing from someone very soon.

This is a problem with the way Microsoft implemented IMAP. I won't be back to my Mac until Monday to test it out, but there might be a workaround, although it doesn't sound like it fixes the issue. Maybe this link will help http://answers.micro...dfda7f5a?page=2
