Outlook 2010 - Replies included in InBox

noamco36 used Ask the Experts™
In Outlook 2010, when I look within the Inbox at an email thread, I dont see the emails I, myself, sent as part of that thread.

I have to go in the SentItems to reference the emails I sent.

Is there a way to consolidate the SentItems into the Inbox threads?

(I do have Conversions set "on")

I personally wouldn't do this but here you go:

File -> Account Settings -> E-mail tab -> Change -> More Settings -> Sent Items -> select Inbox and click OK
Pls check the below settings:

Go to File | Options | Mail | Save messages.

Then check "when replying to a message that is not in the Inbox, save the reply in the same folder”.

Click the "View" tab, and check the box that reads "Show As Conversations" - then decide if you want that applied to just the inbox.
