Why aren't my sent emails showing up in my sent folder?

Often when we setup our iPhones and iPads we do not complete the process to truely map the phone to our email accounts.

After launching your settings up choose mail contacts and calendars. Select the account you wish to sync for sent emails, drafts or trash. Under IMAP select your account. Make sure it is set for IMAP and not POP. This allows multiple devices to access the maill account without one downloading the email off the server for itself. Go to Advanced at the bottom. Under mailbox behaviors select sent mailbox. From you here will want to change sent to the mailbox sent folder down below. This is the same process for drafts and trash.
