Outlook 2007 not saving sent mail when using IMAP

I have recently setup Outlook 2007 to use with IMAP. I've checked on the option to save sent mail but I've notice that sent mail is not being saved. Any ideas why this might be or how to enable it?

In tools > account settings (I think, but I have 2010 now so not 100% sure on 2007 location right now), check the data files tab for the different stores in use, choose the 'IMAP' (Exchange?) one and set as default usgin the button for that.

Its possible that its saving the outgoing mail in a 'sent' folder on the IMAP server as opposed to the local Sent folder in outlook.
