I thought Thunderbird was going to mirror my gmail account. It does in almost every detail except the SENT folder. While gmail account has messages in SENT the Thunderbird account is not showing them?

Apologies ... I did not realize I was posting this in the Android area. I meant to post it in the pc area. How can I undo this?
