    I have two emails set up in outlook 2010.

    I want to make a rule that any email sent from email B gets put into email B's sent folder. believe it or not this is not how it is set up by default.

    In creating the rule these are the steps that leave me at a dead end:
    1. Home Tab
    2. Rules
    3. manage rules & alerts
    4. new rule...
    5. Start from a blank rule: Apply rule on messages I send
    6. NEXT
    7. step one: check off 'through the specified account'
    8. step two: click blue highlighted word 'specified' to bring up options
    9. Account: A is the only option
    Any help is appreciated.

    Assuming they are pop3 accounts, I'm 99% sure you'll only have the option to use one sent items folder. You can create a sub-folder within "Sent Items" for "Account B" and save a copy there.

    If you can use IMAP instead, I'm pretty sure you can specify a separate folder without it also being duplicated.
