When you setup Mac Mail, by default MacMail will not use the “Sent” folder on the server to place sent emails in when the server is configured for IMAP. If you wish to have your sent items stored on the server you will need to go through a short, simple process in order to have this done:


click_folder

Step 1: First you must select the “Sent” folder in the left side that is listed under the IMAP folders for the account.


click_mailbox_sent

Step 2: Next, click “Mailbox” from the menu bar. Go to “Use This Mailbox For” and in the box that opens up select “Sent”. With this done MacMail will now use the “Sent” folder on the server to store sent emails rather than use the local “Sent” folder.
