Mail app uses more data?

I understand the iPhone uses a general mailbox where all of your emails go regardless of the account the emails came from as well as separate mailboxes for each account. Does this cause more data to be used if on cellular data or does the mail app itself do the duplicating? I would think an email is only fetched once and then the app copies it and puts it in the additional folders. Is that correct? An email isn't fetched three different times if it's being put in three different places at the same time, is it? Thanks.

I've used several versions of an iPhone and never heard that emails go to one General Mailbox. Each account is separate, with separate inboxes, sent, email folders, etc.

You can configure each separate account to fetch, or manually check, so the data usage should be determined by the size of the messages.

Doing the best I can here... And remember, there's always more than one path to success. :)

I was reading an iPhone 7 guide book and it said in addition to separate inboxes there is one general overall inbox where you can see all your messages. This is supposed to be a convenience so you don't have to keep checking each separate inbox but it seems redundant to me! Plus it takes up twice the storage!
