How to send Sent messages to a particular folder.

I run two different business and have set up to personal folders in Outlook 2003.
The problem I am experiencing though, is when I send emails through Email Account 1, all the Sent messages go into the Sent Items Folder.  When I send emails through Email Account 2, all the Sent messages go into the Sent Items Folder as well.

To stop this from happening I create a RULE after sending a message and all works reasonable well, the only problem being, that the RULE doesn't just move the message, it only creates a copy, which means than I have two exact emails in to separate folders.

Is there any possible way to just have this rule place the Sent Message into the 2nd Personal Folder under the folder MS Sent Items.

correct me if i am wrong but from the rule you should be able to move the mail and not just copy.

Hi,

You can also use software for managing sent items with multiple accounts but as Zanemwest said already I think the rule should be able to be modified to move.

I've had a look, and it seems that the option in the Rules Wizard is to 'Move a copy to...'.

There are not separate options for Move or Copy... However i'm only checking in Office 2k2, so it may have changed in 2k3?

Hi Guys,
I am using Outlook 2003 and the only option is move a copy to ...
Knowing this, does anyone have any good ideas?

Are you using IMAP/POP? If so, then you can change the folders used in the account settungs, tab Folders

Or could set up a second rule (below the one you already have in the list) to delete the emails from the inbox. That way (if it worked) the first would get copied to where you want it, then the second rule would delete the other copy that remains in the inbox.

However I don't trust the rules enough to believe that there wouldn't be cases where the email got deleted before being copied, so that's probably not the best solution... :)

PeteJThomas,

I agree with you, I would not feel content relying on the rules so heavily.
There must be another way.  I am using a POP account for both of my Email Accounts.

i would say the easiest option is to have to mailboxes all together and this will deliver seperately.
a bit of a pain, but if you are using exchange then it will work well

If you are able to use IMAP (much better) you can change the folders used for each account:  Tools->Options-Email accounts. Select one account, select tab  Folders.

When I create a rule in Microsoft Outlook 2003 that automatically moves sent items to a certain person and certain folder, I cannot move the sent message itself -- only a copy of it. The original email stays in the Sent Items folder. How can I create a rule so that the original is moved instead of a copy?

It does the job reasonably well, I was hoping for something a little more spectacular.  It isn't the experts fault.  That's a flaw with Microsoft.  Ah well, time to buy Office 07
