Sending mail from an IMAP account does not store sent mail on the correct folder

Not open for further replies.



I'm using Outlook 2007 with windows 7 and I've configured on it a single IMAP folder and I've configured the folder where sent mail should be copied.

Most of the time it works, but from time to time, outlook stores sent mail on the "sent mail" of my personal folder.

Then I've a part of my sent mail on a folder (the IMAP sent mail folder) and another part on the sent mail of my Personal folder.

Is there any kind of configuration to correct this ?

I suspect you will find that it does this when you make use of a specific function - mailing a document from within Office for example will save the sent item to the default pst file NOT the IMAP sent folder. AFAIK there's nothing you can do about that - you need to move the sent item to the IMAP Sent folder manually.
