I have say 100 in the sent items and 100 in the inbox of my IMAP folders.

New gmail account. Has only 1 sent and 0 inbox

Im using gmail to "Send mail as" and Ive enabled IMAP.

It sends as the identity (default) and they land to the recipient.  However, I dont see any of the 100 sent items in gmail.  

Can I expect gmail to SYNC all the IMAP folders for an email account added?

Im interested in Sent Items and Inbox primary
