Outlook doesn't save sent emails

Not open for further replies.

Mr. Pedantic

I'm using Outlook 2010 as part of Office Professional Plus 2010. I sent 6 emails yesterday from Outlook through my Gmail account, and I can't see any of them in Outlook. They're visible in Gmail in the sent items folder, but nowhere to be found on Outlook - not in Drafts or Outbox either. The only time they're visible is if someone replies, and then it's visible in the inbox as a conversation

I've enabled the "Save copies of messages in the Sent Items folder", but that hasn't seemed to work.

Your GMail account is probably setup for IMAP, so the Sent Items behavior is normal. You can change this by going to 'File tab|Account Settings', select your GMail account, click "Change", click "More Settings", then click the "Sent Items" tab. Here, you can select a server folder to hold your Sent Items, or you can select to have them saved in your local Sent Items folder.
