Files from Excel and Word sent to email not showing in outlook sent files

Not open for further replies.


When I send a file from excel to outlook in office Home and Business 2010 the email does not show up in the outlook sent folder? So I am not sure if it went out? In my previous office 2003 it would show in the sent box? I need to see that the file was sent.

if it was sent it would be in the Sent folder in 2010 as well. How many accounts are configured in Outlook? How many pst files? Sent items will go to the Sent items folder for the account, not to one sent folder used by all accounts.



I have no idea. I have no idea. In my Office 2003 version of Outlook there was just a sent box and any and all sent emails would show up there. If I send an email directly from Outlook it appears in the sent folder but if I am working in Excel 2010 and then save and send, it does not appear in the sent folder but I know from calling a couple of the people I had sent the file to that they got the file. I just need to have access to sent files if there is a question.
