Exchange Server 2010
Outlook 2010 configured with Exchange 2010 displays "choose folder" each time a message is sent.

Further details:
  • Option to save sent items is checked under File>Options>Mail>Saving (...).
  • Messages are sent correctly.
  • "Sent items" is chosen as default in "choose folder" dialog box. It just waits for clicking OK.
  • Clicking "cancel" brings error message box titled: "IsInDefaultStore"
  • Error message is: "This function isn't designed to work with Nothing objects and will return False."
  • Outlook is in Polish version but message above was in English.
  • Message is sent and saved in "Sent items" folder even when "cancel" button is clicked.
  • Not sure, but I remember recreatign Outlook profile once already and problem is still present.
  • There is only one account configured.
  • There is one PST file connected but not set as default.
  • I believe I did check everything, and it is not a default, designed behavior.
  • I did try to run Outlook.exe with several switches (don't remember exactly which) to try to restore the default settings - no results.
Problem isn't very annoing (one more click on each sent item), but this is clearly unwanted behavior. Any help is appreciated.
