I'm afraid I don't understand the problem you're reporting.  I don't
use any Exchange servers (anymore, thank $DIETY), but I use the Google
IMAP server all day every day and I've never noticed duplicate messages
appearing in my Sent folder.  I've just looked again and there is only
one copy of each of my sent mails.

Can you be more specific about exactly what the problem is?

I'm using Evolution 3.22.6, and I set up my Google account using Online
Accounts.  When I configure the account in Evolution (via
"Preferences") in the Defaults tab the "Sent Messages Folder" value is
"<me>[Gmail]/Sent Mail".

Confirming that. Apparently gmail somehow figured out how to fix evolution problems but hotmail hasn't yet.

I have no idea why you mentioned *Exchange servers*. I clearly indicated that I am using hotmail in *IMAP*
