IMAP folders for Windows Live Mail

Can anyone let me know what the IMAP folders should be named for IMAP when using Windows Live Mail please?

Sent and deleted emails are not being sent to the folders and I know through experience with another account that its the folders  names that are the issue,

Many thanks,

Neil

Hi Neil, not sure off the top of my head. Perhaps create a Deleted, Deleted Items, Trash, Sent and Sent Items IMAP folder, subscribe to them all, try sending an email and see where it ends up.

If you use Webmail, you can choose which folders to elect as special and delete the others:

I think I've got it sorted - you need to have INBOX in the root folder path, sent items called "Sent" and deleted items named "Deleted",
