Unfortunately, the Stock Android Email app has the IMAP folder names hard-coded in the application, they cannot be changed by the user. The app expects the folders to have the following names:
If your IMAP server uses different names, they are not properly synchronized with the Email app. There are two solutions to this:
There are standards for this, as in the XLIST command for IMAP, which has recently been superseded by the Special-Use extension of the IMAP LIST command. Gmail supports these, and Fastmail, and mail clients like Thunderbird and Opera, and even Outlook 2013 apparently. The problem with the Android Mail app (at least for me) is that it doesn't understand these ...
It seems that this isn't possible at the moment. The support article for Gmail on Android states:
[You can] set default action & swipe to archive or delete messages for Gmail accounts. For non-Gmail accounts, the default is always delete, so even if you change this setting to archive, your messages will still be deleted.
I think there is no need to set those settings in the Email app. You only need to set them in e-mail clients where you are getting duplicate copies of the email, provided those clients have a way of setting those settings.
If you notice in the image below (from the desktop GMail web app), there is a Sent Mail and an [Imap]/Sent folder. The Sent Mail folder ...
The problem here turned out to be the specific email address involved (autodetect was working as well as it could given some absent DNS entries; and anyway, as I now realise, autodetect/autodiscover means something different to every email client, and autodiscover specifically is really just an Exchange thing anyway).
I got suspicious once I had tried ...
Looks like you have not read the the small print before using the
Microsoft Outlook app for Android.
Yes, what you have detected is the way the Outlook Android app works. Outlook is not an IMAP client, instead username and password are transmitted to a cloud server (named "Exchange Online") that saves these info and then logs into your mailbox, ...
I have painstakingly found the final answer to this:
Google will ALWAYS block SMTP logins from anywhere, even their own gmail app, unless you turn on the 'allow access from less secure' setting in your google account's security (https://myaccount.google.com/security)
In order to use a gmail account as a non-native gmail account without the allow-less-...

Open the Gmail app.
In the top left, tap on Menu.
At the bottom tap Settings.
Under the General Settings, go to Swipe Action and change as per your preference.
Hope it helps.
I have found a solution for this problem with my Internet provider that doesn't involve hacking the app or anything so complicated. In the Android Mail app (Android 5.0 on Samsung Galaxy S5; the same app was present under Android 4), go to Settings → Manage accounts → (select the account) → MORE SETTINGS (button at bottom of screen — scroll down) → Incoming ...
