does outlook allow "send and file" as in Lotus Notes? I would like to switch
to outlook from Lotus Notes, but want the convenience of being able to file a
sent email at the time of sending. Thanks!

Thanks, Sue! Works like a charm!

Outlook has no built-in feature to designate the save folder when you send a
message, but you can add that capability with a little VBA code. The sample
at http://www.outlookcode.com/codedetail.aspx?id=1173 would apply if you
always want to save the item in a folder in your default store (Exchange
mailbox or Personal Folders .pst file).

For VBA basics, see http://www.outlookcode.com/d/vbabasics.htm

Sue - this is wonderful! I've been wishing for a long time there was a way to
do this; I think when I asked this question several years ago I was told it
wasn't possible.

I did notice one thing though, and I'm wondering if there's a way to change
the code to fix it (I'm by no means confident I know how to do it myself).
Once I've clicked "Send" there's no way to cancel the email. I do click it
(or use the keyboard shortcut) occasionally when I'm not ready to send yet,
or I start to send and decide I don't want to after all. With the code, if I
click Cancel it still gets sent, but goes into the Sent Items folder rather
than a specified folder. Is there a way to make Cancel actually cancel
sending the email instead?

Cancel is canceling the macro that moves it. Try setting a rule to delay
sending for a minute or two, then you can open it from the outbox and make
the changes, before sending it again. See

Thanks Diane. But I don't know if I like the idea of delaying sending all my
emails - sometimes I'm hoping for a quick response and it seems like it will
slow things down.

What about clicking the close box (x in top right corner) to get rid of the
dialog box - does that start the Cancel action as well? (I did try it and it
still sends the email...just wondering if there's a way to capture that
action instead.)
