IMAP
Good morning,

I'm using IMAP and set up right so that all items sent from within Outlook are saved in the sent folder of my IMAP account. But when I send an email out of outlook, (right on top of a file and send to> mail recipient) it saves the message sent to my local folder in Outlook, not IMAP folder.

I noticed that when sending messages this way the tab Options> Save item sent. When I choose a manual folder that is inside my IMAP account it goes to the correct folder, but wanted to put it as the default for every time I do not need to choose the folder in it.

Thank you!

The Send to commands call up outlook at a different point, after the sent folder setting is picked up. Yeah, it's stupid but it's how ExtendedMapi works. If this is only a problem when you send files from windows explorer, see Create a custom Send to... shortcut - Slipstick Systems for shortcuts that will use the correct sent folder. Unfortunately, this won't work when you send from applications.
