Hello, Whenever I send an email, the copy in sent mails is marked as unread. This gets quite tedious :)

Hello there madsmh We have read your message We try to help you.

The messages of your sent messages are indeed listed with you in the sent folder because you get a copy of them. This in a certain order of offers from relevant e-mail programs that are currently running.

Select sync and storage. Check the Keep messages in all folders for this account check box. Click the advanced button. Make sure the 'sent' folder is selected for download. Then click ok.

Restart thunderbird.
