    Attempting to cc: myself in e-mail

    Sometimes I want to send myself a copy of an email when I send it out. I usually do that either in the To: or CC: line. It used to work, but does not work now.

    I am using Outlook 2010. I have 3 pop email accounts 1 Exchange account configured in outlook. I recently added the Exchange account, but did not notice if the problem started at that point.

    Any suggestions??

    Thanks,

    John

    What happens when you ad your email address to the CC line?

    Is it possible that you created an anti-spam rule that deletes messages sent from your own address?

    Can you test using each of your accounts (use the Accounts button to send on the account which is intended to receive) and see which ones have this issue?

    Sorry if it sounds dumb, but you have confirmed that other people do get your emails?

    Yes, others are getting the emails. That was the first thing I checked.

    And I suppose that happens regardless of the email account you use to send the message?

    Do you by chance use gmail? I read in the Yahoo group managers forums that gmail does not return your own messages to you.

    Work around suggestion

    I don't run 2010 but on older versions tend to look for workarounds.

    If you have three POP-3 accounts and one exchange account, then, presumably a CC to an address that represents you but is different from your sending one would be possible?

    In addition, send email only to yourself. See if it shows in "Sent items", that should indicate if the problem is in sending or receiving--two different functions.

    Additional information. It only appears to be the default email. I have tried all the others and am able to email myself. The sent file does show the email in the email, so it is getting sent out.

    Ok, that shows, IMHO, that it is not an Outlook issue, at least in the sending part. I can't figure out a reason for Outlook to behave one way with some accounts and differently with others, unless you had rules to deal with email sent from different accounts in different ways. Which is the default account? Who is the provider for that account?
