Is there any way to use POP/SMTP or IMAP to access the SENT mail folder of a gmail account?

Is there any way to use POP/SMTP or IMAP to access the SENT mail folder of a gmail account?

I would like to be able to download those emails using my desktop email client or even forward them to another address.  Any suggestions on how I could do that?

@cashonly: It doesn't matter what client you use, as long as you are using IMAP you can see a "Sent Items" folder there.

IMAP does that by default. POP3 can access only the inbox, so isn't a viable route.
