In Outlook Express go to Tools>Options>Send tab.

Enable first box (Save Copy of Message in Sent Box).

I use BT Yahoo mail if you go into
Options>Management>General Preferences>in Folders/Search Results tick the box saying save a copy of your sent messages in the special folders and click save.

thnks for reply Stuartli Idid what you said and the box was already ticked, this seems OK for outlook but I want it to work in Yahoo. Sparkly I also went into tools on yahoo but could not get up what you said, also could you explain how I stop my emails going from Yahoo into outlook and clearing my yahoo inbox. sorry if I am a bit thick I am an old wrinkly.

Hi talyho i can only remember if you run the BT Help if i remember correctly it ask you do you want to make Yahoo your default mail client allso you could go into your outlook click on tools>in the general tab>untick send and recieve messages on start up that shold leave them in your yahoo folder.(outlook express) In Microsoft outlook its
tools>options>mail delivery>untick check for messages.
(sorry if I am a bit thick I am an old wrinkly.) me to we are all learning, thats why we end up here with the wise ones.

On your yahoo page click on My Mail on the left hand side you should be in your Inbox page now, on the right hand side click options,now in your Mail Options right hand colum Management click General Preferences then under Folders/Search Results click Save your sent messages in the Sent Items folder then save changes. Good luck.
