I think I've seen this asked before, but have not seen an answer yet. How can I set the imap prefix for another account. See this example:

I have a zimbra server for work, and a few personal email accounts, and one of them is causing a lot of issues with this problem. can anyone assist?

Mac Mail, Thunderbird and other IMAP clients have a Setting for choosing which folder to use for Sent mail (and for Trash, Drafts etc.). In my experience the default setting is a local folder, but this can be changed to use one of the folders on the IMAP server. I do this with Mac Mail on High Sierra for example with no problem.

Hope that helps,
