      Thanks SadBloke but this wouldn't work in my case.

      I have some Yahoo! Mail accounts as well and they don't work this way.

      Instead I am able to set up rules in my client that pick up the emails I get and files them in the right folders, something IMAP makes impossible in the client. This is more helpful to me than setting up the rules via the browser, especially when in the past they limited the number of rules you could set.

      I have set up a system using a second email address, e.g. gmail, hotmail, gmx etc. Any free email system will do. Whenever I send an email, I send a blind copy to that spare email address. It does 2 things: it gives me a separate backup for my sent mail and it shows me that the email was, indeed, sent. I can then use Thunderbird or any other email client to download them onto a computer (or 2, in my case) for storage.
