VBA Send email but do not save in sent items

Hello all,

I have an app which emails XLS files to a client.  This works fine but we send about 150-200 200k files every day so my Sent Items folder quickly fills up with 30MB of files or so every day.  I do not need these files once they have been sent so my question is:

How can I continue to send the files but for Outlook to not save the message in Sent Items.  I have a search folder configured to identify these emails so I just periodically empty this folder.  My code is attached below, hopefully someone can tell me a simple command to force Outlook to just send the email without saving it

Set olapp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
Set oItem = olapp.CreateItem(0)
With oItem
      .Subject = "Purchase Order: PO" & Trim(Str(numb + 1))
      .To = emailaddress
      .Attachments.Add "C:\PO " & Trim(Str(numb + 1)) & ".xls"
      .Send
End With

Set olapp = Nothing
Set oItem = Nothing

I am away until next Monday so if I don't respond until then thanks for your responses.

Cheers

Gary
