Hi, I am a relatively new eM Client user, recently discovering it as an option to gain access to my iCloud address book and calendars, after switching from a MacBook Pro that I handed over to my wife, to a Windows 10 laptop. I’m also running it on my iMac, for consistency, but have not totally switched over from Apple Mail just yet.
With Apple Mail, I can set Mail to store Sent mail either locally or on the IMAP server, and I normally store it local. With eM Client, it appears the default is to use the Sent folder on the IMAP server (Gmail, iCloud, etc).
So - my first question is - how do I set my IMAP accounts to store sent mail, drafts, etc, LOCALLY. I only see options to type the name of the IMAP folder, or have it automatically detected.
My second question is this. If I use eM Client and let it store my sent mail on the server, does the Archive function (manual or automatic) archive my Sent folders, as well as the Inbox and other folders on Gmail or iCloud IMAP accounts? Can you control where the archived Sent mail goes for each account? That is assuming that local archiving or automatic archiving even touches the Sent folder that is…
I have LOTS of mail, going back decades, and really don’t want to fill up my quota on Gmail by storing everything up there. Any advice is appreciated.
