Windows 7: Setting up Outlook 2007 on Win7

Setting up Outlook 2007 on Win7

I've just re-installed Win7 Home on my PC and this time decided to use Outlook 2007 (from Office Enterprise suite) to get my emails - didnt really like W Live Mail.

So I enter my internet email account settings (msn.com using relevant POP3 and SMTP and so on) and all is fine, it starts downloading emails and putting them into the Inbox folder - so on Outlook I can now see all the emails I've ever received, just like I'd see if I was connecting to my account using Internet Explorer or Firefox.

My problem is that is hasn't done the same for the "Sent Items" folder. It's still empty, despite many entries being present on my account (if I go via browser). I'm pretty sure that on W Live Mail this wasnt an issue.

Any ideas why this folder wasn't updated on Outlook and what I can do to download my "Sent Items" as well?

Thanks in advance.

Interesting way of doing it, but if it does the job I'll be happy.
I will give it a try when I get home.
Thanks for your help.

I think that the problem is that Outlook does not take this need into account and it is difficult to perform. In any event, it is a one shot deal. All mail sent in the future will be listed.
