You can use the Rules Wizard to create a copy of the sent
message on any folder you choose, including a server-side Internet Message
Access Protocol (IMAP) folder.
Outlook will save sent messages in your local Personal
Folder (PST) Sent Items folder. You can use the Rules Wizard to save sent

sent messages from being saved on the local PST folder.
