If the message has been moved to “Sent Messages” then MailMate has 
definitely received an acknowledgement from the SMTP server that it has 
accepted the message. It'll either arrive at its destination or the SMTP 
server will send you some kind of error message later.

The “Sent Messages” folder under SOURCES is a virtual folder. Each 
subfolder (if you have multiple accounts) is identical to an IMAP 
mailbox in the corresponding account (under SOURCES). As noted in 
another reply which one is controlled using “Mailbox ▸ Mailbox 
Type”. You can also see which mailbox is currently assigned by looking 
in this file (I should make that easier to find using the GUI):

	~/Library/Application Support/MailMate/Sources.plist

If nothing specific is listed (`sent = '...'`) then it's either 
heuristically derived or based on a special reply from the IMAP server 
(only some servers support that).
