Note that mutt won't allow you to enter that mailbox path directly
because it has a space in it.  However, you can use tab-completion.
Aassuming you have no other Gmail tags starting with the string
'Sent', you can do this:

Press 'c'
Press '='
Press '['
Press <tab>
Type  'Sent'
Press <tab>
Press <enter>
