    It may sounds silly but someone asked for it...

    People who uses pop3 for their emails, asked somehow to get a copy from what they receive AND send
    to the imap folders (.Inbox / .Sent / .etc respectively).

    Is this somehow from cPanel, WHM or from a configuration file possible ?

    Tried to convince "just use ONLY IMAP" but it doesn't work.

    I don't know the reason, I don't want to know just I need to know if somehow this is possible :confused:

    I'm a bit confused here. IMAP and POP3 are reading from the same folders. Have them simply select "Leave a copy on the server" when using POP3 so that it doesn't download the emails each time and IMAP can still read from the folders then without the emails being cleared.

    Tested on thunderbird.

    If I setup an account using POP and send an email for example somewhere it doesn't matter,
    with the checkbox "Leave messages on server" checked and then go to domain/webmail for example,
    it's not there. (In the Sent folder)

    That's what I am trying to figure it out how to do it...

    Maybe I confused you.

    Another example:

    The same thing will happen if I use POP on a client and send a message from Roundcube /webmail.

    I can see the message in the Sent folder in roundcube and horde but it will never be on Sent folder
    if I use POP in my local PC.


    I know POP doesn't work like that, but I am trying (hoping) to find a solution/hack/tweak/anything :)
