Outlook--Sending a Copy of a Message to a Specific Folder

How can I send or cc a message to a folder I've created in my Exchange mailbox?

You can send a message to a public folder because public folders can have mail addresses. However, folders in your mailbox don't have individual mail addresses. To make an outgoing message file go into a particular folder in your mailbox, use one of these methods:

  • Before you send the message, click Options and change the Save sent message to folder.
  • Set up a Rules Wizard rule to file copies of outgoing messages to folders based on criteria you define.
  • After you send the message, drag it from Sent Items to the target folder. If you want to leave a copy in Sent Items, hold down the Ctrl key as you drag the item.
