Outlook 2003: Setting up your Sent folder

Setting up your Sent folder in Outlook 2003

Note: Outlook 2003 is no longer supported by Microsoft

Since Outlook 2003 and previous do not have support for assigning a Sent Items folder at the mail account level, we must emulate it via a message rule

1. First make sure there is a Sent Items folder in your IMAP mailbox.

  • If you have not subscribed to the Sent Items folder yet, choose Tools > IMAP folders

2. If no Sent Items folder exists yet, choose File > New > Folder

3. Open the rules dialog via Tools > Rules and Alerts

4. If you see a dropdown list at the top, make sure it is set to the Inbox of the IMAP account.

  • Click the New button to start with a new rule.

5. Select the option to Start from a blank rule

  • Select Check messages after sending. Click Next.

6. Select the option through the specified account 

  • Click on “ specified “ at the bottom of your screen and select your IMAP account. Click Next.

7. Select the option move a copy to the specified folder**  **

  • Click on “ specified “ at the bottom of your screen and select your Sent Items folder in IMAP account.
