Had a question about these different private mailboxes that are available to all users. Here's an explanation:
Inbox: Where all mail to you goes. This one should be obvious.
Outbox: Mail that you have sent that the recipient has not yet read. You can still edit these messages.
Sentbox: Mail that you have sent that the recipient has read. You can't edit these messages as they've been read.
Savebox: A mailbox that you can use to store messages you deem important, separate from your regular Inbox. For those of us that like to keep our Inbox 'clean'.
By splitting send mail into an Outbox and a Sentbox, not only are you able to edit messages that haven't been read yet, but you get automatic read notification as well! Curious if someone's read your message yet? Just check if it's in your Sentbox.
