I set up my email account on the mail app on the home screen. Not my gmail account but another non gmail email that I use. It uses IMAP/ssl and it works fine. I can send and receive emails. However any emails sent from the phone do not write to the Sent folder on the email server so there's no record of that email ever been sent. I don't believe it be an issue with my email server as my older Windows Mobile and my Blackberry used to write sent mail there just fine. I'm assuming it's a setting somewhere in android I need to enable? just not sure what or where. Anyone know?
