    i have my email account set up on my touch, it's an IMAP account.

    when i send an email, it appears to place the email in a sent items folder that only exists on the touch, and doesn't place it in my actual email account sent items.

    when i check my email account on webmail, the email is not in sent items.

    the same is the case for deleted items.

    what settings do i need to change so that these are properly replicated?

    my mailbox behaviours on the touch are:

    drafts mailbox : Drafts
    sent mailbox : Sent Messages
    Deleted mailbox : Deleted Messages
    IMAP Path prefix : /

    are you using hotmail? i found by trial/error that you have to tick a box in the lower corner to keep a copy of mail. this is different from the outlook express manager that i had been using. outlook keeps the copy, hotmail.com must be prompted.
