    Utility for saving sent items? (2002)

    I'm looking for a utility or add-in to encourage/force my users to save out-going messages in appropriate locations instead of the Sent Items folder. Ideally, the utility would bring up a dialog box whenever they click Send. The dialog box would let them pick the folder where they want to save the message. Does anyone know of such a utility? I have scoured slipstick.com and other Exchange/Outlook sites but have not found what I need. And my usual developer built a macro that comes close, but he is now at the limits of his Outlook programming skills. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Sorry, I don't know of a third-party utility for this. However, you should know that "tallying" and "tracking" features of appointments and voting buttons are lost if you move your Sent items out of the Sent Items folder. This may influence your decision.

    if you are going to try this, I had this code you can add this to the item send event
    Sub SendnFile()
    On Error GoTo errh
    set namesp = Application.GetNamespace("MAPI")
    Set imItem = Application.ActiveInspector.CurrentItem
    If imItem.Class <> 43 Then GoTo ends
    Set imItem.SaveSentMessageFolder = namesp.pickfolder
    imItem.Send
    GoTo ends
    errh:
    res = MsgBox("There must be at least one name or distribution list in the To, Cc or Bcc box.", 48, "Microsoft Outlook")
    ends:
    End Sub


    hope this helps
