    Hi all

    I'm using Mail 4.4 on OSX 10.6.6 and had same issue using imap account on my own domain. I've looked to have solved the problem within Mailbox Behaviours. In the Sent area I unchecked the 'Store sent messages on server' check box. Sent my self an email, Mail created a sent folder and the sent email was there.

    Before this I setup a 'smart mailbox' to have a copy of emails sent from my address, this also worked. Maybe an idea if the above does work for you.

    I had the same trouble. Apparently sent mail past 1gig can cause issues.

    My sent mail was in my library, about 2 gigs of them, I backed my whole mail folder up "Library/Mail" and then deleted my mac.com account in Mail Preferences . Quit the program. Then added it back.

    They all came back. Archiving the older ones now.

    I hope this works for you!

    In Mail 4.4... just tried moving from POP to imap in 4.4. Some how, some where, lost all my sent and trash email. How can they just vanish?? Had a huge sent and trash... am guessing that's why it crashed. Not in library... can't find the emails anywhere. I'm hooped. Help??

    If you removed the POP account without saving the Sent messages to either an On My Mac mailbox, or if you first established the IMAP account, moving them to its Send folder, then they would be lost, and Mail would have issued a strongly worded warning message that that would happen.

    carbon602, that worked for me (Sent Mailbox Messages are all back).

     

    Thank you so much.

    The Mailbox Behavior for my IMAP sent messages is "Store sent messages on server" and it is checked.

     

    I see folders for "sent", "sent messages", etc. but they never populate with my sent IMAP emails.

    Same problem

     

    I use Mail 5.2 accessing an IMAP account on my own domain. At the beginning of Feb my Sent mail started to misbehave.

     

    Some days none of it will appear, other days some of it will appear. However, email is getting sent, being received by the recipient and the NOT appearing in the Sent mail folder.

     

    This appears to be the case if I try to access the mail using MAIL or if I access it via a webmail system. So I am unsure whether it is a problem with Mail sending the email or Mail not liaising with the mail server correctly to file sent emails or some new exciting thing that is going on with my mailserver independent of MAIL.
