    Change 'Save sent message to:' folder (2000 SR-1)

    When composing a new message, one can click on View | Options to bring up the Message Options dialog box. Under Delivery options, is the "Save sent message to:" option that allows a user to save a copy of the sent message to a specific folder or not save a copy at all.

    Has anyone developed a macro that enables a user to (a) uncheck the box or ([img]/forums/images/smilies/cool.gif[/img] enter a different folder than is currently specified? Of course, the most-complete version of such a macro would check to be sure that the requested folder exists and, if not, offer the user the option to create it. I would be happy with just the ability to uncheck the box or specify a different folder name.

    Thanks,

    - Al

    Hi Al,
    I might be missing the real purpose for your question, but why not just disable the functionality right from within Tools | Options...?
    Click on Email Options..., and then uncheck the box labeled 'Save copies of messages in Sent Items folder'.

    This will turn off the constant saving of sent emails.

    HTH

    Re: Change 'Save sent message to:' folder (2000 SR-1)

    K,

    My default is to save a copy to the Sent folder. On a message-by-message basis, I want the ability to not save or to save to a different folder. So, I'm not concerned about the problem of always saving a copy; I want to be able to change my default setting - for an individual message, not in general.

    Does this help?

    Of course, it did seem too easy. <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>

    I'm sure someone else will chime in and offer some code to do what you want. Until then, would it be possible just to add the Options... menu item to a button on a custom toolbar for a message?

    Just right-click a toolbar, and click Customize... Then select the Commands tab, choose View from the Categories pane, and click and drag Options from the Commands pane to a toolbar of your choosing.

    This will put you one click away from being able to disable/change your sent item destination.

    Thanks. I always the Options button to the tool bars of all Office apps. Just makes things easier. So, I done that much.

    I thought the code wouldn't be that difficult even though I'd categorize myself as a hacker... I used some of Sue Mosher's code to create a macro to change the reply-to address. Changing the Save sent message message folder turned out to be beyond my hacker knowledge.

    Re: Change 'Save sent message to:' folder (2000 SR-1)

    Try this code (I think I got it from Slipstick, but I can't find it there now.):
    <pre>Sub File_Sent_Items()

    Dim objNS As NameSpace
    Dim objFolder As MAPIFolder

    If Item.SaveSentMessageFolder = "Sent Items" Then
    Set objNS = Application.GetNamespace("MAPI")
    Set objFolder = objNS.PickFolder
    If TypeName(objFolder) <> "Nothing" Then
    Set Item.SaveSentMessageFolder = objFolder
    End If
    Set objFolder = Nothing
    Set objNS = Nothing

    End If
    End Sub
    </pre>


    It shows you a nice dialogue box for you to file the item, you can even make a new folder if you want. If you click cancel the item goes into sent items - you could change the code to put items into deleted items if they are not sent to another folder. Hope that helps.

    Anyone want to help me with my filing question? <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>
