Hey, here is a intresting one.

My clients run Outlook2000 & 2003

I have all my clients using IMAP, but have had to create a pst folder locally for "Sent Items".
Ive created a new folder on the IMAP server called "Sent Items" and want to config Outlook to save Sent Items onto the IMAP Server and not to the local pst file.

How can I do this?

    The mail doesn't go out thru the IMAP server, it goes out thru an SMTP server.  So the only way for the message to actually get to the IMAP server is for you to actually put it there.  Here is a rule which does that for all outgoing email:

    Hey, my IMAP Server is Also my SMTP Server, so all emails do actually go via the IMAP/SMTP Server.

    Yeah I thought that the only way around this would be to create a rule, which is pants as I will have to config this on everyones computer, damn!

    Great link!

    Sorry, you may be talking physical servers, I am talking about virtual servers (really services) that are accessed thru a combination of server name/ipaddress AND port.  IMAP and SMTP do not use the same "service", even if they are both physically running on the same device.
