Can one of you talented gurus explain this?...

Apple Mail folder > "On My Mac" > Inbox folder >
I have a structure of alphabetized folders with subfolders in Mail, for easy sorting
The other day, I added an emoji to the end of the original name of a few folders and subfolders
A few days later, removed the emoji only, going back to the original name.

Upon removing the emoji, one folder (Folder E) immediately relocated to the
bottom of the "On My Mac" list, though keeping its original name (Folder E).
I moved it back to it's correct alphabetical location.

From this point on, whenever new mail came in,
if it was to sort to (Folder E) or any of (Folder E)'s subfolders,
a brand new (Folder E) was created at the bottom of the "On My Mac" list (again},
containing whichever subfolder this mail was to populate in my original (Folder E) email folder tree.

(Folder E) was then no longer recognized by sorting rules, only this new (Folder E)/subfolder email tree.

(So it seems that if I were to receive new mail for entries into the (Folder E) email folder tree,
It would have duplicated this entire folder/subfolder email tree.)

The folder that I moved back to "it's correct alphabetical location" remained there.
The old emails it contained remain inside.

Any thoughts on what happened here?
Thanks in Advance.
