not saving messages in sent folder
Reloading programs on my reinstalled win 10 I cannot locate a settings or choices page to make settings such as this. Doesn't seem to be in Options.

This is a Thunderbird question, obviously.
Hi I understand you are looking for the setting to manage where copies of sent messages are saved. Try - Tools - Account settings - Copies and Folders. It there is a place to specify - When sending messages - 'Place a copy in .... [folder]' Make sure the box is checked, and that the folder exists and is where you expect to find your sent mail. I hope this helps, Agnes
Hi Agnes Looks like that was all checked already. When I was getting reinstalled, I was working out of my online mail account. The test emails I sent from there show up in my sent box, but nothing I've sent from Thunderbird on my computer.
If this is an IMAP account, check that the Sent or Sent Items folder (name depends on mail provider) is subscribed. Right-click the account in the Folder Pane, Subscribe, click Refresh, check the box for the correct folder.
Note that some providers like gmail and outlook.com automatically copy sent messages to Sent, so you should uncheck 'Place a copy in...'
If by the folder pane you mean the left column with the accounts and their subfolders, right-clicking does not give me a Subscribe option. Somewhere else?
BTW, on the Tools / Account Settings / copies and folders page I get two options. Save a copy in Sent in the account is both of them, but one has an icon of an envelope and padlock, and the other a blue square with a white doily. Neither one seems to save a copy.
