Outlook saves sent messages when it is not supposed to


F

I have Outlook 2003 and Windows Vista.

Under Email options, I’ve unselected the “save copies of messages in
Sent Items folder”

I created a rule to be applied when receiving a message:

If the subject contains vuvuzela, permanently delete the message and
reply using an .oft file.

Then I created a rule to be applied after sending a message:

Move a copy to the Sent Item folder except if the subject contains
vuvuzela

If I send a message with vuvuzela in the subject, the item is not
saved.

However, when replying using the .oft file, it does save the message
in the Sent Items folder.

I can I correct this?

Can it be done using VBA?

The subject in the .oft file is blank.

If I receive an email with “vuvuzela The revolution of cookware” in
the subject line, it replies with and email with “RE: vuvuzela The
revolution of cookware” in the subject line

I have tried changing the .oft file with the subject line being
vuvuzela but it does not work either.
