    I have a sasmung note 10.1 and i am feeling some problems regarding the email configuration in the native app.

    I tried several configurations, contacted the email service provider and followed their instructions, but the problem remains.

    1. I can retrieve the emails from server, sync with the inbox folder, but when i sent an email, the email stays local and do not sync with the server side folder.

    Anyone had and solved this problem?

    1. Make sure you use IMAP for set up.
    2. MAke sure you set up all folers to sync messages from all time.

    Imap Check - I Can see the server-side folders. The problem is when i compose a new email, the app do not assume the INBOX.Sent items folders as the destination for that email. As far i as understand there is some problems related with the authentication or the ports that i me using.

    Because if i use the k-9 mail and the tips from the service provider (, i can sync the inbox and sent folderm but with the native email app i dont.

    The native email app don't have all of the configurations that are in the tutorial above. I tried with my galaxy nexus s, and i had the same problem...

    2. Where i can find that setting?

    Just for note: I have an ipad too and i make the configuration and have no problem what all, so this is a little bit weird for me.

    Email>Settings>Folder Sync Settings> Sent

    Choose what you want there. These are the options I have on Jelly Bean, not sure if you have the same ones if you are on ICS.

    Try this..

    Menu - Settings - then highlight your mail account. Scroll down to Outgoing Settings and tap on that then remove the tick from the box where it says Require sign in.

    Sync your email then go back tick the box and add the login details.

    I'd had exactly the same problem and this sorted it for me.

    Hope this helps

    Good luck

    I don't think I can post screenshots as a newbie but my settings for yahoo mail are:

    Security: SSL
    Port: 993

    Security: SSL
    Port: 465

    Tick Require sign in and enter username and password.

    I tried a lot of settings before this and now my folders seem to sync ok.

    If this doesn't work I can't help any more as this is my first Android device and I'm still learning.
