Windows 7: Can't create system folders in Thunderbird

Can't create system folders in Thunderbird

My issue is that I can't "create" folders as "sent items", "drafts", atc. I put "create" in quotes as I'm not creating those folders, they are created by the system. All the issue is as follows: recently I've got new HDD and decided to do fresh install of W7 64bit and all the software and one of them was Thunderbird. Got the latest ver from mozilla site, set up all my mailboxes as IMAP. Now all I have on the left site of the Thunderbird window is the name of my email account and inbox folder. I've got 2 accounts in domain and 1 in my own domain. When I'm sending mail from account in domain, the email is sent ok, but I'm getting massage box with a massage "coping massage to Sent folder " and program never do it. I have to press cancel and chose to don't save sent email, but I do want to have them saved. When I'm sending mails from account in my own domain, again mails are delivered to the recipient ok, but then I've got massage that there was an error saving mail to Send mail. When I press retry it keeps popping this error over and over. I've been given link to google help page but I just don't get it as on this page for instance it's said " On the Copies & Folders tab in the When sending messages, automatically section: Place a copy in > leave unchecked" but I do have something completely different on my screen. I attach picture of my settings.
Do you have any suggestions how to resolve that issue?
