    I am using Outlook 2003 and running Windows XP.

    If I reply to a message in my inbox, all goes well. Mail is sent and sent message appears in sent message file. If I have a message filed in another folder and try to reply to it, the message appears to send, but I end up with the sent message in the same file I sent it from. Nothing appears in the Sent Message folder. I have tried to reply to a message to myself and the message is received in my inbox, but the copy of the sent message only appears in the folder I sent it from.

    Any ideas?

    Check this option.
    In Outlook click Tools> Options> Preferences tab
    Click on Email Options button> Advanced Email Options button
    Uncheck the box: In folders other than the Inbox save replies with the original message
    Then OK your way out.
