Like `'?

I have a doubt. Use this setting, all sent items (news and mails)
are placed in email server's 'sent' folder.

1. If I am right, mail server can do this automatcially when
sending email. This is from my past experience. No matter send by
browser or client, sent emails are synced with 'sent' folder in
mail server. This is done, I think, by IMAP server.

2. Some mail servers, all sent emails go to
local archive sent group (%Y-%m). Meanwhile, they are synced with
mail server 'sent' folder too.

  However, some other email servers won't sync! This is why I need
  explicit archive method and archive group setting.

  Do you have any clues why some sync while others not?
