WebFaction
Community site: login faq

Hi, by following the documentation instructions, I'm receiving and sending webfaction email using gmail web interface. Although for the receiving part, instead of periodically checking with POP3 I just set a forwarding to the gmail address using the option in the webfaction control panel (shouldn't this be the recommended way of doing things as the email reaches faster and it's more efficient?).

Anyway, all is good except that email that I sent from the gmail web interface using webfaction SMTP servers doesn't get recorded in the sent mail of the webfaction mailbox, it stays only in the sent mail folder of the Gmail servers.

Because the mail being sent is using the webfaction SMTP server, I was expecting the sent mail to be recorded in the webfaction mailbox. Is there a way to have the mail sent this way be recorded in the sent folder of the webfaction mailbox?

Thank you.

No,

SMTP sends. IMAP mailboxes are for storage. Unless your e-mail client is using IMAP as well it won't have a way to record since it is the e-mail client which makes those writes.
