I missed some clues. Some imap account will automatically sync
a copy of sent emails to imap sent folder as well as local archive
folder. But another imap email account won't do this. That's weird.

Hi Eric, '\\|gmane' above is to place 'sent messgages in gmane' to
your email server?

That means 'This-account' (email) and gmane (news) share the same
sent folder of your email account. A possible guess is you use
'This-account' to post messages to gmane news groups.

Currently I only have one smtp account while many imap acount. It
seems that Gnus does not support another 'That-Account', right?
