Windows 7: How to Make Sent Items in Outlook End up in their Correct Folders

How to Make Sent Items in Outlook End up in their Correct Folders

I have three email accounts in Microsoft Outlook 2007.

As a test, I sent an email to my main, default account from one of my other accounts. The sent email did not show in the sent items list in the account that it was sent from. It only showed in the sent items of the main default account.

What do I need to do so that any sent items sent from any non-default email accounts are then placed in their own, respective sent items folder?

Thank you

You probably need to set things up so you have each email account running under a different Windows login account to achieve what you want.

With your current setup, you may be able to set up Rules for the Sent Items folder to automatically move the emails to specific folders but in your primary account.

I'm not in front of my machine at the moment so can't test out whether this works but may be worth trying.

Regards.

Hi Ashley,

Thanks for your response. I was wondering, when you are at your machine next, would you be able to try this out for me and then give me a step-by-step instructional guide on how to do it please?

Thank you

This guide should help direct you to set up rules governing your Sent Items emails.

I haven't tried it myself but it looks to be correct and if you follow it precisely, then it should do what you want.

Would suggest you test It out thoroughly and back out the changes if it proves unsatisfactory for any reason.
