    hi , i have been using my yahoo mail (using the windows mail app) with WP8 for a while now,
    i just noticed that emails that i send from the phone dont get synced to the yahoo mail server (i.e. when using the web browser interface to see my mail folders on the yahoo site, the emails dont appear in the sent folder, but they were sent and received by the recipients)

    this is very non intuitive. as a test i reproduced this behaviour a number of times with yahoo mail, and also did some tests with gmail, gmail works as expected, the sent emails are synced and are visible from the gmail.com

    am i doing something wrong , or have a setting missing somewhere (possibly server side , as the phone doesnt have that many settings)?
    thanks

    open yahoo mail! on your computer and select folders, then sent items

    if it's not there, then open yahoo mail on your phone and select the three dots and tap on folders

    select show all folders
    wp_ss_20140722_0005.jpg
    select sent items
    wp_ss_20140722_0006.jpg
    and then 3 dots again and select sync this folder

    thanks for replying, but i had all that set up.

    its very easy to see the behaviour yourself, send an email using your yahoo email address using the builtin windows phone mail app. the mail is delivered to the recipient as expected. you can see the email in the sent folder on the phone. but you will not see the email on the sent folder at mail.yahoo.com, no matter how many times you try to sync.

    repeat the test with a gmail account, but this time if you go to gmail.com and look in the sent folders, you will see the sent email there.

    so now i have half my sent mail on my phone and half on mail.yahoo.com. not very convenient when i need to search what i sent to whom
