imap emails missing from sent folder in outlook 2010

had a imap user account on outlook 2010 who occassionally had sent emails not saved in the sent folder. the configuration in Outlook had checked is correct. Is this a common issue in Outlook 2010 ? what workarounds we can do such that the user received a copy for every email sent out, since saving of the sent emails not that guaranteed all the time ?

as this issue does not happen all the time, is there anyway to confirm if after repair had resolved the issue?

Sorry I did not respond to your post of 9/10.  I did not seem to get a message from E-E about it.
How does anyone know if a suggestion has permanently resolved an intermittent problem other than seeing what happens over a reasonable period of time?

grnow's position seems to be that full credit should not be awarded if a suggestion fixes the problem but no warranty is offered that the problem will not arise again.
This does not seem a healthy precedent for E-E.
