Outlook + Gmail tip: Configuration for Sent Items Redux

I’ve received a number of questions recently about my Outlook + Gmail tip that I posted some time ago. I thought it might be helpful to update you with an ideal configuration for Outlook, or any other IMAP client.

The bottom line is that you do not need to tell your IMAP client to store copies of your Sent Items…Google does some magic behind the scenes if you’re using their SMTP server and automatically drops a copy in your Sent Items “folder” inside of Gmail.
