Outlook OTW - ask where to save sent messages. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello

    Is it possible to configure Outlook on the Web to prompt where sent messages should be saved? I don't want a Sent folder that contains everything I have sent as this will prove to be a nightmare in the future when trying find messages.

    Ideally, I would like to see a dialog that asks which folder the sent message should be saved to.

    Thanks

    Mark

  • As far as I know, Outlook on the web doesn’t have a feature to prompt you where a sent message will be saved.

    If you also use Outlook desktop client, we can create rules to automatically move sent emails to specific folder. For example, you can refer to following rule description:


    At present it’s not feasible to create rules for sent emails on OWA.

    If you have more concerns on this feature, it is encouraged to visit the Outlook user voice forum: https://outlook.uservoice.com/ to vote for a similar idea or post your own.

    It is a place for customers to provide feedback about Outlook. What’s more, if an idea is highly voted there by other customers, Microsoft Product Team will take it into consideration when designing the next version in the future.

    Thank you for your understanding and support!
