If both have the special collections attribute marking them as outbox, it 
should be save to delete one.
But better check first if the directory for the one you want to remain really

For Postausgang this will most likely be $HOME/.local/share/.local-
mail.directory/Postausgang and have three subdirectories (curr, new, tmp)
