Hello Andrej!
Thanks for your answer. I can find the listed metadata via webmail in 
the mail header in my (IMAP) sent folder, so in my case they are sended.
"SCF:#imap/LOCAL_CHOOSEN_MAILBOX_NAME/Sent" bother me the most, i was 
surprised because for me it's an local given name, and in my case i 
manage many different mail accounts.

Do you know where i can find an explanation of those abbreviations?
