I have several IMAP accounts and POP3 accounts set up. The POP3 accounts come with a default set of subfolders (Inbox, Drafts, Sent, Junk, Deleted) which can be used for storage. However IMAP accounts are intended to let you view whatever is on your email provider's server. So if there is something on the server called "Sent" you can see what is on it via WLM. (All that WLM knows is that its a server storage location having a four character label (s-e-n-t) which it does not understand. OTOH, if you are viewing the server on your browser instead of WLM, and you send an email using your webmail service, your webmail server most likely puts the stuff you sent directly using its webmail service in the sent folder it created for that purpose. Similarly, when you send something from the client program, WLM, you are sending it from an account set up on the program. If it's a pop3 account its placed in the pop3 account's sent folder. If it's an IMAP account it's placed in the sent storage folder which WLM has setup as the place to save the items you created and sent via IMAP, regardless of whatever folders appear on the server.
