okay, to avoid the confusion, and to be sure I follow your setup
a) you run a local Courier server, which stores your mails at ~/Maildir
b) you access this local server via an IMAPx account in Evolution
c) you've setup to store Sent messages to the Sent folder of this IMAPx
d) when you enter the IMAPx/Sent folder in Evolution it doesn't show
   certain messages, while they are seen on the disk
e) you certainly _do not_ have a Maildir account configured
   in Evolution, which accesses the Courier's on-disk directory

Did I summarize it correctly, please?

In case I did, the IMAPx account shows what the server reported. There
can be situations which can hide certain messages, like those deleted
or Junk, or if the folder has set any filters (the top Show and Search
part right above the message list). To view deleted messages just use
View->Show Deleted messages option, though I believe it's not the case
here. You cannot view Junk messages like those deleted, for that visit
the Junk folder, though I do not think it's the case here either. That
lefts me with the folder filtering.

Could you verify you do not have some leftover search enabled in the
Sent folder, which may eventually hide the messages from the view,

Alternatively, enter the folder, then right-click it in the folder list
and choose "Refresh" option there. That will update the folder content.

P.S.: I also use an IMAPx-configured Sent folder in my account, even
not Courier, and it shows me all my sent messages as written by the

Setup is correct Milan. I checked for any searches I had and none were
present however, I clicked on the 'Show' and in the drop-down clicked
last 5 days and they then appeared in Evo. It should be noted that the
message count shown by Evo and on the drive have been correct all this
time. Not sure what difference it made selecting last 5 days messages
vice all messages. I'll see what happens when I send this.


Seems to be working fine now Milan since some posts to lists were not
showing up either. Guess it works now, sorry for the noise on the list.
