I have configured my ThunderBird mail client (on Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron) with Microsoft Exchange server. In my Windows PC, 'sent mails' in ThunderBird are shown in Microsoft Outlook client's drafts folder. Isn't it supposed to be a bug? If so who should be blamed? MS or Mozilla TB?

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Send a mail through Mozilla TB which has bee configured with MS Exchange server
2. Try to see those mails in Microsoft Outlook client.
3. Those are shown in Drafts folder of MS Outlook as if it was saved as draft in MS Exchange server.
Actual Results:  
Sent Mails in Mozilla TB are shown in MS Outlook's drafts folder. It very much confuses me as if I have already sent those mails or not.

Expected Results:  
It should be shown in Sent Mails folder on MS Outlook too, right!?

Thunderbird automatically saves drafts of messages in the Drafts folder.  Is it possible that is what you're seeing?

Is Thunderbird set up to save sent messages in the Sent folder?  Is it putting them there as well?
