I have a linux box that I have my website hosted on and my email.   I want to archive my sent mails on the server.


I use pop3 through outlook and I want the server to archive the sent mail when it connects to send the mail.

is this possible?   I cannot find anything about it?

Thanks

Randy

Yes, switch your client to IMAP (make sure your server has IMAP enabled). Then tell outlook to use a server-side subfolder for Sent mail.

Another possibility it your server does not support IMAP is to bcc (blind carbon copy) all your emails to a local email account that you can look at if you ever need to. Just make sure that the server mail box is big enough to hold them all;)

Outlook itself has an option to keep a copy of outgoing email. In outlook express the option is under Tools/options/send "Keep a copy of  sent messages in the Sent items folder". Im sure Outlook has an option to do the same.

when you have root-acces to the server and using sendmail:

go to the alias-file (/etc/aliases or /etc/mail/aliases)

enter a line: (eg. for mail@mydomain.com)

mail:    pop3account, backupaccount

where: pop3account is the name of the account you check with outlook.
backupaccound is a second accound receiving a copy of every mail.
when you need the backup, just check this account with outlook.
