10.4: Regain missing Sent and Drafts folders in Mail
Authored by: simonpie on Jul 05, '05 10:42:49AM
Normally, to have access to a Sent folder nested in Inbox, you need to go in the .plist for mail and change the Sent folder path to /INBOX/Sent (This may change a bit depending on the IMAP server). Check that file to see your configuration. Sadly, Mail does not let us change that from the preference pane. Personnaly, I had to change a lot of things to be able to use my IMAP server (like Trash and Junk path).

10.4: Regain missing Sent and Drafts folders in Mail
Authored by: tetsuotheironman on Jul 05, '05 02:34:35PM

there is an easier way.. (and it must be nested cause Mail.app's support for CyrusIMAP kinda sucks)

under one of the menus there is a 'Use this folder for' and you can select which mailbox you want to use for trash, sent, drafts, etc etc..

They do not even have to be named the same. When you select the folder you want to use Mail.app will label it with it's 'Sent' 'Junk' 'Trash' and other icons, although it does not actually change the location of the folder on the server itself.
