Please don't auto-create the email attachments folder
Please stop with the folder creation!!!!!!!!!!!!
I choose what goes in my drive!
If i wanted a folder called 'email attachments' i would
create one .. its annoying having to delete them everytime i come bk to onedrive
This is now resolved. Thanks for your patience.
Added further clarification on 10/2/19:
Sorry for the confusion, when we said we were done it was for addressing the autocreation of the “Email Attachments” folder asked for in the title of the user voice. A few other auto-created folders are still enabled for certain features in the OneDrive ecosystem.

Just let me add the folders I want.

Quick fix that worked for me: move the folder to a different location via the web interface, you can hide it in some random subfolder and it will stay there
Acknowledges the suggestion in January, 2000+ votes, and still nothing in June. This lends to the idea that Program Manager's are useless....

Don't forget the Documents Folder as well. Stop auto generating folders

I'm glad to see this suggestion was pointed.
This is the most ridiculous thing ever and I don't even know what program is causing this. Every few hours I would get a "Attachment" folder and would have to delete it. Sometimes I get Attachment 1 Attachment 2 Attachment 3 if I don't delete them fast enough. I can't believe this has been going on for half a year.
please.. stop this from happening

Just wanted to chime in here with the hundred other people who hate this annoying feature. STOP CREATING FOLDERS FOR ME.

My solution was:
Right click on OneDrive icon in the Windows taskbar -> Select settings -> Choose folders -> Uncheck the folder "Attachments". -> And delete the "Attachments" folder afterwards.
The downside is that I then have to Choose folders to sync manually when new folders has been created.
Please fix this

If you are on a Mac, I have a solution that takes 30 seconds to permanently hide this "Attachments" folder. It uses the Terminal app. http://eastmeadia.com/blog/user-experience/stop-creating-onedrive-attachments-folder/
I have when you create folders for me, such as pictures, and attachments. I want everything saved to the same place, like maybe a downloads folder and I will organize as I see fit because you and I don't agree on folders.

I've been researching this for a while, it was absolutely driving me crazy! I found a post saying to bury the folder in a less annoying spot within OneDrive. It worked perfectly! I put it in a sub-folder in a location I rarely use, so my multiple times daily regimen of deleting this annoyance is no longer needed. It's not perfect, but it worked.
