Having used several e-mail clients --and a few different servers-- my mailboxes now contain multiple folders for the same purpose. For example, There is 'Sent' and 'Sent Items' and 'sent-mail' and 'outbox', 'Trash' and 'Deleted Items' and 'Deleted Messages'. I've also seen 'Junk E-mail', 'Bulk', and 'Spam'.

There seems to be consensus for 'Inbox' and 'Drafts' so why not find or submit a standard to some e-mail standards body. My preference is the shortest possible: 'Sent', 'Trash', and 'Junk'. Although 'Junk' and 'Trash' are very similar so perhaps 'Bulk' is more appropriate.

It is quite annoying, but with most IMAP clients, you can specify what your sent items folder should be. Even outlook 2007 finally supports this!

Really? Does this include storing the Sent Items in the IMAP store instead of a PST? I didn't think Microsoft would ever fix the crappy IMAP support in Outlook.

Yep - Finally. I am running outlook 2007 Beta 2 on one of my laptops (under windows XP) and yes!! Outlook ASKED me where I would like my sent items to be. The obvious choice is the IMAP folder, and NOT the pst. About time - even outlook express has managed to cope with that for a while now!
