When a new mail item is created in Outlook (through automation), how do you save it to a specific folder? It always saves the email in the Drafts folder which I presume is the "Outlook default folder for the item type".

In the Menu, select Tools --> Rules Wizard and you can specify which message should get saved in what specific folder.

rpai,

The messages that need to be saved are newly created, unsent email. The rules wizard works with sent and recieved messages only.

If you create a new message in Outlook and then save it, it is saved in the Drafts folder automatically. I realize that the default folder can be changed in Outlook but I do not want to do this. Email created by a user *should* go into the drafts folder but the email that I am generating through code needs to be saved in a specific folder.

Figured it out.

After creating the email, instead of .Save (which always saves it in the Drafts folder), I am using:

MailItem.Move (myMAPIFolder)

to save it in a specific folder.
