Download Webmail Sent Items to Thunderbird

I use Webmail during the day and Thunderbird when I get home.

Synchronising TB pulls my inbox down but not my sent items.
Is there any way that this can be configured other that copying myself in every e-mail that I send from WebMail?

Thanks

No

When webmail was in Beta I did suggest a "BCC to Self" checkbox but that never happened.

Have you tried using IMAP rather than POP3, it's such a long time since I used IMAP my memory's faded on this so I can't remember if this works?

Yep it works.

With IMAP any e-mails you send will be copied to your sent mail folder on the server after you send them.

You also get the added advantage that you can use more than one Computer and see exactly the same mail on all of them.

You can also set up other folders on the server and move mail around from folder to folder.

Far superior to POP3

I use Thunderbird @ work, either Thunderbird, Outlook Express or Evoloution at home (depending which computer I'm using & webmail everywhere else. I see exactly the same mail regardless.
