question on outlook

Can I configure outlook to send a 'bcc' to myself whenever I compose a message and send it to a contact?

You could certainly add your address as a bcc each time you send an email, which would then end up in your 'inbox' but I don't think it is possible to configure outlook to do it automatically.

Isn't it enough that a copy of every email you send is sent to the 'Sent items' folder?

I am aware of the methods that you write of. I thought maybe there was a way (like setting up a rule) other than the traditional methods. Just curious, that's all.

Thanks for clarifying.

The easiest way is to create a folder on your harddrive called (e.g. Saved Email).

Open Outlook and the new folder 'side by side'

Highlight the sent Emails you want to keep and then Drag accross to the new folder.

You then have a permaanent copy of those emails on your system, which can be opened (click on file), renamed, copied to your word processor and edited, or any thing else you want to do.

Thanks Terry. That is a good way of achieving what I want. Much appreciated.
