    Anyone know how I can configure my IMAP email account to move the deleted messages and sent messages into the TRASH and SENT folders respectively?

    I unchecked the option to store them on the server, but this did nothing. When I delete any emails from my account, they don't move to trash and are permantely gone, right on the spot! This is very annoying and I have accidently lost several emails because of this :confused:

    Isn't IMAP email server based and POP downloads to your computer? Sorry if I'm wrong, but I'm confused by what you want to do.

    When I delete my emails using the delete button in Mail, they do go to the Trash and the Sent messages are stored automatically, too... (POP account)

    Here's what I've got my IMAP set to, and it works like you seem to want it to. I remember thinking it was a bit non-intuitive to set up to get it working, hope it works for you.
