How do I change special folder locations in Outlook 2013?

I'd like to know how to specify which server folder to use for special folders (such as "sent", "trash", and "junk"). Annoyingly it seems that the email app on Windows Phone 8 saves trash and sent to "Deleted Items" and "Sent Items" respectively with no way to redefine them. Outlook defaults to "Trash" and "Sent". This becomes a little annoying when I access the same IMAP server from both devices as my sent items and trash are split between two folders each. Does anyone know how to specify the special folders to use under either Outlook 2013 or email on Windows Phone 8? I only need to adjust one to bring it in line with the other, but I would assume this functionality to exist on both applications to be honest.

Outlook 2013 doesn't let you pick and choose which folders to use, it gets the folder from the IMAP server configuration.  (Outlook 2010 let users pick the sent and deleted folders.) 

I don't know if the windows phone will let you pick the folder, sorry.
