Delayed Send/Receive w/ Exchange Server - First Draft of eMail in Sent Items RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have tested this on both my corporate system using Exchange and my personal system using POP/SMTP.

    On my corporate/Exchange setup:

    1. Set my Options -> Send/Receive -> Uncheck "Send Immediately" -> Set Send/Receive Interval to 5 minutes
    2. Write an eMail -> Send
    3. eMail sitting in Outbox  ** Also, email copied to Sent Items folder IMMEDIATELY!
    4. Open eMail sitting in Outbox -> Edit -> Send
    5. Manually or Automatically (interval) Send/Receive  ** Sent Item email not updated

    Item in Sent Items folder is the first draft, NOT the edited version.

    Did the same on my personal POP/SMTP system -- email not copied to Sent Items folder until the actual Send action takes place.

    How can I fix the Exchange system settings to (1) keep my Send/Receive interval settings, AND (2) not have a copy in Sent Items until the final eMail actually is sent?

  • Hello,

    My environment is exchange 2010, outlook 2013.

    I test it as your method. I get the following results: When I send a message, the message is sitting in Outbox, but the message is not copied to Sent Items. When I manually or automatically send the message in outlook, the message will not be sent, and the message will not appear in sent items.

    If I check "Send Immediately", the message will be sent in outbox and messages will appear in sent items.

    So I consider you will not uncheck "send immediately".

    Please check if there is related outlook rule.
