    On my computer I use Windows Live Mail to access my IMAP hotmail account while on my smartphone I use an email client called BlueMail. On my phone, my IMAP hotmail account shows a trash folder but on Windows Live Mail this Trash folder seems to be missing? Windows Live Mail seems to delete into a folder called Deleted Items but I cannot map this to the Trash folder because in Windows Live Mail (WLM) it doesn't seem to exist. When I delete from my phone it goes immediately into my Trash folder. This causes syncing problems between my phone and my computer. I've tried redownloading the Imap folders to my WLM program several times but this doesn't seem to work. It still can't find the trash folder that I see on my Smartphone. I think there is something really screwed up with this WLM program. Anyone else having this problem or know what is going on here or how to fix it.
