Please note that the outlook topic would probably help here!

That said sent email can be saved with the received emails as well as in the sent items folder which would complicate matters so can you clarify what is happening so we can try and provide appropriate help?

It would help immensely if you provided the code that you're using to create the email in the first place (Assuming that's what you're doing).  

If you're creating a mail object in vba, set DeleteAfterSubmit to true, which would stop it from going to sent items in the first place.  For example:

Set OutApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application") 
Set OutMail = OutApp.CreateItem(0) 

With OutMail 
            .To =
            .Subject = 
            .Body =  
            .DeleteAfterSubmit = True   <----  don't save it in outlook
End With
