iMac mail is just Soooo confusing!

Could someone kindly explain to me how imac mail is supposed to work. I just cannot get my head around it!
I spent 2 hours on the phone to support yesterday and they weren't much help!!

Basically as well as the imac I own an ipad and iPhone.
I have 3 email addresses. 2 AOL one mine and one my partners and a gmail addy.

If I send an email from my iphone or ipad. They show up in my AOL sent box on my mac. But if I send one from my mac they only show up in the local mac mailbox (one with paper plane logo) and not in my AOL sent folder!!
Gmail seems to work fine.
Also. For some reason the mail sent today is only showing the time top right in blue and not date!
And on ipad and iPhone in sent folder it shows recipient in bold above email. On the mac it just shows sender I.e me even if I adjust the 'sort by' at top!!
Could this be an AOL problem or are my devices just not syncing correctly!!?!

Again I would really appreciate some help. It's driving me nuts trying to sort it!
