Configuring IMAP sent folders in Windows 10 mail app

Hello,

Yesterday I installed Windows 10 and was verry happy to see the integrated mail app. I connected to my IMAP sever and recieving mails works fine. However, I would like to set the folders on my IMAP server in which Drafts and Sent messages are stored. I could not find any setting to do this. 

Does anyone know if this setting exists or if there exists a workaround for this issue?

I'm trying to connect to my own IMAP server (so not any service like Google or Outlook). This server is running Dovecot as an IMAP server.

Need to make these changes in the Windows 10 Mail app which comes as the default email client in Windows 10.  Could do this easily in Windows 8.

Thanks

I also would like to know where I can change the default imap folders (drafts, sent, deleted), which was possible in the windows 8 mail app, but seems to be gone in the windows 10 mail app.

Seems like there's quite a lot missing from the Windows 10 mail app that previous mail applications had.  

Tempted to go back to Thunderbird, I've not used it in years but the Windows 10 mail app is (while admittedly pretty) completely sub-par.

It seems impossible by the available settings.

Did anyone find a workaround to set a different sent mail folder? Each mail client can do this, but mail in win10.

It's not the settings that are the issue.  My ISP provider has well documented settings that I'm using. 

The problem is that the mail app is not mapping the folders correctly with my server, and as a result, not able to sync them properly.

As a result, it shows two different sent files, and emails I send to get stored in either of them.

Fortunately, by using POP settings instead, I can send and receive, and have an email saved on my device, but not on the server.  

I would much prefer to use IMAP settings, but it just doesn't work.

Hi Scarfino,

If you're facing sync issues in Mail and Calendar apps, we suggest you try the following steps:

  1. Remove and recreate your email account.
  2. If you have a secondary account that's not syncing, remove the account and add it again. The Microsoft Account that you used to sign in to Windows is added to Mail and Calendar apps by default and can't be removed.
  3. At the bottom of the left navigation pane, click Settings icon.
  4. Outlook Mail Settings icon.
  5. Choose Manage Accounts, and then choose the account that you want to remove.
  6. Click Delete account.
  7. Add the account again.

You can also refer to the article about Resolve sync issues in Mail and Calendar apps in Windows 10 for more setting options.

Provide us an update on the progress of your concern.
