Solution for Synchronization Problem - Possibility for manual matching of IMAP folders
The possibility to correct the matching of IMAP folders, like in Outlook 2007 should be added.
That means it should be possible to change the settings for the folders were the Sent and Deleted items should be stored.
This is a serious problem in the German Outlook version (17 votes in microsoft comunnity): Due to wrong matching the Synchronization does not work correct. E.g. Outlook stores the sent email in a folder named "Gesendete Elemente" (sent items) and the email provider expects "sent".
Updated status to let you know we are working on this issue. We will update again once we know when the solution is ready for release. Thanks for taking time to give us feedback.

I finally convinced Hover to add correct support for the IMAP XLIST commands so that now my email account hosted with them properly communicates my preferred "Sent Items" folder location (as specified in their Roundcube webmail interface) to Outlook 2016 over XLIST. Yay! I guess that's what we have to do if Microsoft won't add back the settings options for special folders.

Please let me chnage the folders in which outlook saves sent, deleted and incoming mails. Outherwise The version 2016 is unusable.
I just bought Office 2016. It was obvious for me that it would be simple and straitforward to add IMAP's account.
It's been 5 hours now and I still have duplicated folders (sent, draft, trash ....). Even for Gmail ! Call it Outlook Exchange if you don't want to support IMAP.
I suggest that Microsoft fix the multiple email download problem.

My Outlook 2016 saves sent emails in the "SENT" folder on my IMAP account. I wish I could change it to "Sent Items" like I could in Outlook 2010 and earlier.
What's also painful is that the Windows 10 Outlook Mail app saves sent emails in the "Sent Items" folder and there's no way to change THAT! So both Microsoft Outlook email programs are saving sent emails in different folders with no way to get them both to put the sent email in the SAME folder (without writing a macro that is).
I support this. One of the main purposes of using IMAP is undermined by this, especially if one wants to work across different platforms.
It's also a slap in the face of all customers paying for Office 365 and who are getting less functionality than what is offered by similar free software.
