I come from a Lotus Notes background where the email client distinguishes between "folders" (physical representation of a set of emails) and "views" (logical representation of a set of emails). One benefit of this behavior is that if I file a sent email in the "Stuff" folder, the message will appear both in the "Sent" view and the "Stuff" folder. This way, my "Sent" view is an authoritative record of ALL sent emails.
In Outlook, "Sent Items" appears to behave like a folder, such that if I send an email and then file it, it's removed from the "Sent Items" folder. This makes it difficult to see all the emails I've sent regardless of where those outbound messages are now filed.
Are there workarounds for this?
