  1. Open your IMAP account settings via;
    File-> Account Settings-> Account Settings…-> double click on the IMAP account.
  2. Press the button: More Settings…
  3. Select the Sent Items tab.
  4. Enable the option “Save sent items in the following folder on the server”.
  5. Select the folder where you want to store the Sent Items in.

    You can press New Folder… if a Sent Items folder does not yet exist on the server.
