Why IN THE WORLD can we not archive Sent messages? 

Could I at least create a new box to put them in, like a Local Folder in Thunderbird?

 

Hi @gonder,

This is a fair question and I'm not totally sure why this is the case. If this is something you feel should be added to Canvas, you could add a feature idea to suggest that functionality. You can create feature ideas here.
