it was suggested I use a outgoing email relaying service to get around having a dynamic IP address that's on blacklists.

I set that up for a friend's gmail account using windows live mail email client (and is set up as IMAP) and it;s working great.... except that her sent mail isn't showing up in her sent folder (which being imap, is on the gmail server).  I totally understand why it's not working, but realize that's an issue for this and even for someone using exchange / office 365 - if you aren't sending  out through the exchange / o365 server, it doesn't see it to know to save an email.

But is there a work around to keep the sent emails in the imap (on the gmail server) configuration?  BCC yourself the emails and then manually drag / drop into sent folder?

thanks!

With windows live, Outlook and and in old Outlook Express, because the stored emails are in a different format I simply create a folder on my desktop pull that to one side, then open the email client open the sent box hit the ctrl  +a selects all then drag them over to the folder on the desktop, not too many though as it could cause a problem, do a few at a time.
This saves the email in the present form as an email. now open that folder and if you have the details pane drag that line into the center and then when you hover the mouse over an email you can preview it on the right side.
This folder can be copied over to your friend then that person can actually drag it into the sent folder if the email client is the same
Open the sent folder pull the email client to oneside then open the folder of emails drag into sent.
Everything is getting too one sided with Microsoft and Google and Microsoft account.
You could use the email client Thunderbird  to CC to yourself which I also use and found it similar to windows live emails, it shows you the settings just ok them carefully when setting up.
Or instead of CCing yourself just run it beside your other email client it downloads the emails as well then you send from there.
If you need help let me know with how to use it

When MS stopped using Outlook.com for windows live my ISP here in Australia changed to their web and using Thunderbird I found the new server ip address and outgoing ports and used them in the windows live and now it works flawlessly again.
