Using and IMAP account. On main server there are inbox, Sent, Trash, Drafts, Infected Items, etc. But I also have under Outlook and in Favorites a folder called "Sent Items." Some of the items I send end up in "Sent Items," but most most in the IMAP server "sent." How do I reconcile this? Thanks.

Check your settings for the IMAP account to see if you have the option set to keep sent items in the local sent items folder.

Funny about this new Outlook, or if you don't know Outlook (I'm learning it.) You really have to dig layers down to find the right settings. Wish there was a good manual. The help files are pathetic. Thanks very much Milly.

In addition to what Millie wrote, if you send documents from within Excel or Word by email, then those sent mails will end up in the local Sent Items folder rather than the IMAP folder AFAIK - I don't think you can change that behaviour..
