How to create an item in the Sent Items folder?
Esteban Astudillo


I?¬?–?ťve been trying some code to copy mail items to the Sent Items folder. I?¬?–?ťm able to create the new item in the folder, but the ?¬?–?žSentOn?¬?–?Ū and ?¬?–?žSent?¬?–?Ū properties of these new items are not set giving the users the impression that they should send those items.

Do you know of a way to set the ?¬?–?žSentOn?¬?–?Ū value?

Thanks in advance

Um, are you trying to create and send a message? Just copying an item into Sent Items won't cause it to actually be sent. The Sent & SentOn properties are read-only. You don't set them, Outlook sets them when it sends the message.

Hi Esteban.

I agree with Brad. These properties are set by Outlook while it sends messages.
