windows live mail storage folder

had 2 accounts setup under windows live mail. had imported the folders from outlook express to windows live email under storage folder. how can we
1) had the sent emails be moved automatically to 'sent items folder' under storage folder from either of the accounts?

2) how to have the storage folder appearing 1st on top. even after renaming the 2 accounts' names to last alphabet, they will default showing first, with the storage folder appearing below.

Refs to>1) have the sent emails be moved automatically to 'sent items folder' under storage folder from either of the accounts?<< do you mean with new sent emails?<< no you can't assign a different folder to show your sent mail, you have the default sent at the top with your account.
The other is not a directory for incoming or outgoing mail but rather a storage folder with the name sent. It can be deleted/renamed.
The Default Sent folder cannot be renamed/ or deleted..

Pay close attention to where the little down arrow is from the Storage Folder which is on top.
Maybe you are creating a new folder under your ISP account, I have two email pop3 accounts When I rightclick one or the other of my pop3 accounts name I can create a new folder from there but it will appear above the storage folder.
where you see the red x's in my screenshot
creating new folders under ISPEnsure you rightclick the storage folder and make a new folder give it a name so that it is alphabetically on top but below the Storage folders as expected.
new storage folder
With the current imported emails click on that folder so that all are at the top right viewing panel and highlight one then press ctrl a to highlight them all and drag over and down to this new folder in the left panel under storage folders
drag those emails from the old to this new, please be responsible though, if there is literally hundreds I wouldn't do it like that as it could cause a lockup or WLM becomes unresponsive.
Maybe a few at a time
delete the old
drag emails over to new folderbtw if you get to reading my drafts, those hearing aids were for my 89 year old dad. yeah he loves them.
I couldn't be bothered blurring them it's not personal just illustrating.
cheers

I understand that you imported the OE folders to the Windows Live Mail Store Folder, but  the OE folders are separate from the WLM folders.  In other words, as an example, you have an OE Sent Items folder and a WLM Sent Items folder.  Is that correct?
Re question 1.  You should be able to drag and drop the .eml files in the OE folder into the corresponding WLM folder.  Now these .eml files should function just like any WLM .eml file.  You can then delete the now empty OE folder.  That should be very simple and should be just as fast as doing it "automatically"

I do not understand question 2.  Can you rephrase?

under the storage folder, there is the imported -> local folder -> with all the sub folders like inbox, sent items, etc. when i sent email from account A, it will save the sent emails under account A 'sent items' folder. how can a copy of the sent email be saved automatically in the imported 'local folder -> sent items' folder rather than under account A 'sent items' folder?

when i import account A and account B, they appear first on top, then storage folder below. how to adjust such that storage folder appears on top, followed by the imported accounts below?
