This guide explains how to change the sent folder so that sent emails will be synchronized against the server, if the email account is configured as IMAP.

Step 1 - Settings

  • Tap the "Settings" icon.
  • Select "Passwords and accounts".
  • Select the email account you wish to edit.
  • Tap your way into the account.
