Outlook XP Q.

hello,

why is it that my Sent Items folder does not have a lot of messages in it? i am quite used to using Entourage X (OS X) and it saves all of my Sent Items until i make a rule to delete them. i would like this to happen in Outlook XP. does the program by default delete Sent Items? i only have 5 or 6 messages in Sent Items. this came up today as i needed to look at an email i sent not a week ago today. can any1 tell me how to make it so that my Sent Items are saved? thanks.

Have you checked the options? Tools, options. Somewhere in there, sorry I can't be specific, I'm at work using Outlook 2000. By default it should save them until you manually delete them, it does for me.

well in tools > options > email options i have the "Save copies of messages in Sent Items" item checked.

i think i have found the problem to my issue. it is a thing that Outlook calls AutoArchive and it is on by default, and does not prompt by default. this "feature" is pathetic, stupid, idiodic, and bull ****, but then it is M$.

Filters

yep, it does prompt you, and yep, it causes admin nightmares for .pst files, don't know what they're thinking with that one...:eek: Are you sure you have your Views correct? If you have the Advanced bar showing (right-click on toolbar, select Advanced) you should see a little box that says Messages. Or another way is your View menu \ Current View. You should have either Messages or Messages with AutoPreview to show all messages. If not, go to Customize Current View, and click on Filter \ and Clear All in the bottom corner, then OK to exit. This clears your filters so you're in the normal view
