Outlook 2007 - sent items going to wrong folder

Hi, I have a computer with Outlook 2007 with three IMAP mailboxes and one personal folder (not used but default data location),

Any outbound email is saved to the Sent Items in Personal Folders rather than the Mailbox from which it was sent.

I couldn't see any appropriate setting to change and I know it is easy to drag them to the correct folder, but I just feel it is something I should know how to do.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Take care not to confuse mailbox with account.  The mailbox is the place outlook delivers mail (including sent items), and can be changed here: Tools | Account Settings | Selected e-mail account delivers new mail to the following location button.

You may want to set up the following rule to automatically send your sent items to the right folder:
.  Apply this rule after I send the message
.  through the specified account
.  and on this machine only
.  move a copy to the specified folder
