Mail doesn't show up on Sent Folder of mail server when sending via Send Mail Node


I use Send Mail Node and send a mail. I can see the sent mails on the part of “sent mail” folders of or

but when it comes to a custom mail address provided by

It doesn’t show on “sent folder” of the “Windows Mail” mail client or “Mozilla Thunderbird” mail client.

I might find a solution for this, it’s about adding a field to the code of n8n to save sent mails to sent folder.

Also in the desktop mail client, there is an option about saving sent mails on mail server.

I think this might be about a setting on the n8n code. I might be getting it wrong too.

Did anyone experience something like this before? At least can you tell me what is it about?

Information on your n8n setup

  • **n8n version:**0.213.0

So what do you guys think?

Hey @onurbolaca,

It gets tricky with sent folders, The sent folder is sometimes managed by the client not the server itself so each mail client can have it’s own sent folder. Some services do automatically save to a sent items folder on the server side though which can cause confusion.

I don’t think the library we use has an option to save a copy so if the server doesn’t automatically do it the only thing I can think of would be to bcc yourself.
