Whenever I send messages from Outlook, the sent messages are not getting saved on the server (POP3).

Is there any way to save a copy of the sent messages in the server?

What e-mail provider are you using in conjunction with your Outlook account? Yahoo? Live? – H3br3wHamm3r81 Oct 15 '11 at 7:49

Not unless the server is configured to do so. POP is read-only; there is no way to write a message into a POP folder in the same manner as with IMAP.

Thanks for clearing the doubt. In case of an IMAP server, how can I do that.? – SyncMaster Oct 15 '11 at 4:22
"Not unless the server is configured to do so." How does someone configure an Exchange 2010 server to save sent items via POP3 on the server? – qroberts Aug 20 '15 at 14:10
