    Outlook - to force mail to be saved in sent folder(s)


    Hi folks

    sometimes outlook doesn't save sent messages in spite of options settings

    This method always works :

    'fraid it's a registry trick though (regedit)

    The Registry keys associated with the Save copies of messages in Sent Items folder option are as follows:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\x.0\Outlook\Preferences
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\x.0\Outlook\Preferences

    Where x.0 is your version of Outlook:

    Outlook 2016 = 16.0
    Outlook 2013 = 15.0
    Outlook 2010 = 14.0
    Outlook 2007 = 12.0
    DWORD Value Name: SaveSent
    Value Data:

    0 = Disabled; Sent emails will not be saved in the Sent Items folder.
    1 = Enabled; Sent emails will be saved in the Sent Items folder.

    On some machines the policies might not exist so just do ist change --if key doesn't exist create new DWORD with name vale SaveSent as above.

    Cheers
    jimbo

    :)

    Outlook 2010 Keeps Changing Sent Messages Folder


    I have Outlook 2010 set up on 3 PCs to save sent mail items in a particular folder on an IMAP mail server. This works for a while then the sent mail starts being saved to the Outlook Data File / Sent Items folder or the Sent Items folder on my MS Outlook email account (connected via MS Exchange). Is this a known problem and is there a fix?

    Outlook 2016 doesn't show sent mail in sent mail folder


    The "Outbox" is only for unsent mail so I guess you don't mean that but rather "Sent Mail"?

    Anyway, what is your email account?

    My sent mail for gmail (bottom account below) shows not under "Sent Items" but "[Google Mail]\Sent Mail" whereas my outlook.com account (top one below) shows in the root of the IMAP tree.

    You can change the root folder path (that is the name of the directory that the "inbox", "sent items" etc directories are stored under on your IMAP server) here:

    but while entering the root folder name here works for other IMAP mail accounts I use (so you see "Sent Items" under root not subdirectory) I use I never got it to work properly for Gmail on Outlook 2016 for some reason.

    SENT EMAILS NOT BEING SAVED IN SENT FOLDER

    PLEASE HELP! I have Windows 10 and I use Windows Mail. I can send emails but the emails I send are not being saved in my sent folder. My internet service provider has confirmed that the problem is not with the server but with your Mail application. I spoke
    with one of your customer service agents and was advised that in order to enable the Save copies of messages in the Sent Items folder, I must do the following: In Outlook 2010 or later versions: Click File, click Options and in Options, click Mail. Under the
    Save messages section, enable the Save copies of messages in the Sent Items folder option. Click OK. Problem. When I follow your steps and go into Mail, there is not a Save messages section. I want to enable save sent emails and it should not be this difficult
    and time consuming.
