I have my system setup si that SENT emails go to the SENT folder under that profile.
However, if I use Craigslist, and click on their "Reply by Email" button, the mail I send goes to the LOCAL SENT folder.
However, any new emails I do from TB WRITE email, goes to the profile SENT folder as it is suppose to.

POP or IMAP account?

I assume "However, if I use Craigslist, and click on their "Reply by Email" button, the mail I send goes to the LOCAL SENT folder." is talking about a webmail implementation provided by Craigslist. If not, please clarify/elaborate.

With a POP account the sent folder used by webmail is not the same folder as the sent folder in your profile. POP accounts can't upload or share messages with webmail and can only fetch mail from the inbox. With a IMAP account Thunderbird can use the same folders that webmail does.

When I click on the CL reply button, it opens TB new message screen, so it isn't a web version of email.
