Hello,


When i send a Email visa Smtp, it doent appear in the imap 'Sent' Folder...

Is it normal ? Isn't it a common practice for emails providers to copy sent email via smtp to imap sub-folder?

Saving a Mail to Sent must be done by the mailclient. This is not triggered by the server. Please check your settings in your mailclient.


If you use our webmail system, a copy is saved to your Sent folder.

In Thunderbird, it happens as the default, with IMAP engaged fyi

UI Layout and some of the features. Seems to handle IMAP better here. Themes are limited though.

IMHO this should be an option that mailbox.org supports server-side. Gmail does this by default. Sometimes emails are sent using an smtp client (sendmail or msmtp) that have no concept of imap. In those cases, sent mails are lost forever.
