    Disable saving copy of sent mail

    Does anyone know if there's a way to prevent the mail app from saving copies of sent mail?

    The SMTP server of my mail account (and several others) already saves sent messages in the sent folder. With the mail app also saving a copy, I end up w/duplicates for each message sent.

    Outlook has an option to disable this, but I like the modern mail app otherwise. Thanks.

    Hi there. The only thing I can think of is that it's saving Sent mail to show in Conversations. Try turning that feature off.

    Charms Bar > Settings > Options

    Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, that doesn't work. There are some 3rd party clients I might try, but I'm skeptical. I'll likely end up using Outlook.
