Hi

I organise my emails in various folders and sub folders. After I have replied to an email I manually file it away. I can see from the conversation view that Outlook knows the folder I am going to file it into, as it can see the other messages in the conversation (assuming there is an ongoing thread, of course). Is there a way to get Outlook to file it away, rather than doing manually?

This has been bugging me for ages!

What you see is Outlook search capability and the option to show messages that belong in the thread that are in other folders. You can use quick steps to file the messages, but it's not automatic and you'll need one quick step per folder. if the folders names are consistent you could use a macro to make it more automatic or you could use a 3rd party utility to automate it completely.


This page: http://slipstick.com/outlook/rules/running-rules-on-messages-after-you-read-them/ has two utilities that can do what you want.
