Sync sent folder across all devices

One of the broadminded ways to keep your sent mail folder in synchronization is suitable for few instances. But in many cases, it fails to show the simplicity behind applications in mail. There were three ways to make it simple:
  • In all devices, its must to use IMAP as mail application
  • Decide one folder and name it as sent folder in the server
  • Make one folder as official folder for sending mails and configure it using the server.
Why sent folder needed?
