Erlaubt es, eine Kopie gesendeter Nachrichten in den aktuellen oder einen beliebigen anderen Ordner anstatt in den 'Gesendet' Ordner zu speichern. Außerdem kann man bei Antworten die Originalmail ggf. gleich mitverschieben.
Allows to place a copy of sent messages into the currently active folder or any other folder you choose instead of the 'Sent' folder. For replies the original message might be moved along with the new message.
Hilfreich, wenn Nachrichten z. B. auf einem IMAP-Server vorsortiert werden, und man Antworten auf eine solche Mail im gleichen Ordner wie die ursprüngliche Nachricht speichern will.
Useful, if your mails are presorted e.g. on an IMAP-Server, and you want answers to a mail be saved along with the original mail.
Muß für jedes Konto in den Einstellungen des Add-ons individuell aktiviert werden.
Must be activated individually for each account in the options dialog of the add-on.
Es gibt eine Einstellung um den Zielordner für die Kopie *vor* oder *nach* dem Senden auswählen zu können.
There is a setting to allow to be asked for the target folder *before* or *after* clicking send.
Als Abkürzungen für 'Senden mit Kopie in den Gesendet-Ordner' und 'Senden ohne Kopie' gibt es Menupunkte, Tastaturkürzel und Icons (rechte Maustaste in den Menubalken und 'Anpassen' wählen).
For "Send with copy to 'Sent' folder" and "Send with no copy" there are menu items, keyboard shortcuts and icons (rightclick into the menubar and choose 'customize').

Besonderheiten bei Gmail Konten

Peculiarities of Gmail accounts

Gmail Konten verhalten sich anders als 'normale' IMAP Konten. Gmail kennt keine Ordner, stattdessen arbeitet es mit 'Labels', die an Mails angeheftet werden. Eine Mail, die z.B. das Label 'Arbeit' hat, wird von TB im Ordner 'Arbeit' angezeigt. Mails, die mehrere Labels haben, werden von TB in jedem entsprechenden Ordner angezeigt. Außerdem wird jede Mail auch im Ordner 'Alle Nachrichten' angezeigt. Die Mail ist auf dem Gmail Server aber tatsächlich nur einmal vorhanden! Wird eine Mail in TB vom Ordner 'Arbeit' in den Ordner 'Privat' verschoben, so wird lediglich das Label 'Arbeit' von der Mail entfernt und das Label 'Privat' hinzugefügt. Wird eine Mail in TB vom Ordner 'Arbeit' in den Ordner 'Privat' kopiert, so wird der Mail das Label 'Privat' hinzugefügt.
Gmail accounts behave differently than 'normal' IMAP accounts. Gmail doesn't know folders, instead it works with 'labels' that are attached to mails. For example, a mail that has the label 'Work' is displayed by TB in the 'Work' folder. Mails that have multiple labels are displayed by TB in each appropriate folder. In addition, each mail is also displayed in the 'All Mail' folder. The mail actually only exists once on the Gmail server! Moving a mail in TB from the 'Work' folder to the 'Private' folder only removes the 'Work' label from the mail and adds the 'Private' label. If a mail in TB is copied from the 'Work' folder to the 'Private' folder, the label 'Private' is added to the mail.
Wird eine Mail gelöscht verschwindet sie in TB aus allen Ordner, in denen sie bisher angezeigt wurde! Sie erscheint dann ausschließlich im Ordner 'Papierkorb'.
If an email is deleted, it disappears in TB from all the folders in which it previously was displayed! It then only appears in the 'Trash' folder.
Eine weitere Besonderheit von Gmail ist, das versendete Mails das Label 'Sent' bekommen, und von TB daher im Ordner 'Gesendet' angezeigt wird. Ein Versenden einer Mail ohne das dies passiert ist nicht möglich. In den Einstellungen dieses Add-on ist die Wahlmöglichkeit "zusätzliche Kopie in den 'Gesendet' Ordner" für Gmail Konten daher automatisch aktiviert und läßt sich nicht deaktivieren.
Another special feature of Gmail is that sent emails are given the label 'Sent' and are therefore displayed by TB in the 'Sent' folder. It is not possible to send an email without this happening. In the settings of this add-on, the option "additional copy to the 'Sent' folder" for Gmail accounts is therefore automatically activated and cannot be deactivated.
Wird als Ziel des Add-on 'Keine Kopie' ausgewählt und die Einstellung "'Keine Kopie' bedeutet 'Kopie in den Papierkorb'" ist nicht aktiviert, so erscheint die Mail im 'Gesendet' Ordner (und damit auch unter 'Alle Nachrichten'). Ist diese Einstellung jedoch aktiviert, so erscheint die Mail ausschließlich im 'Papierkorb'.
If 'No copy' is selected as the target of the add-on and the setting "'No copy' implies 'Copy to trash'" is not activated, the e-mail will appear in the 'Sent' folder (and thus also under 'All Mails'). However, if this setting is activated, the mail only appears in the 'Trash' folder.
