Turn off "year" sub folders under Archive

In the webmail interface when you press on Archive the email goes to a sub folder named "2016" under the Archive folder. Is there a way to turn this off? Other email clients don't do this.

I totally support this request - a lot (if not most) of users expect Archive folder just to hold all of emails.

I too support this request. These subfolders are a terrible idea, especially because you need to click on the folder if you want to search an email. If just select the "Archive" folder, the search returns nothing. If I search an old email, I don't necessarily remember if it was from 2017 or 2015, and currently I'd need to search folder by folder. (Otherwise, I think the search feature is fantastic :) )

Mailbox team, please include a feature to turn it off.

You can get around this by clicking "all folders" after the search results have popped up. At least via the web interface anyway.

I stand corrected - thank you very much for pointing this out!
