    Windows 8 Mail App Not Saving Sent Mail

    Got the lady love a laptop for Christmas, only now realize Windows Mail has never saved a single sent email. Odd there is a Sent folder, but under Options see no way to set it to save sent mail.

    If you have it setup as IMAP it could be stored just on the server depending on your email client settings.
    Follow the given steps below:

    1. Open Windows Mail
    2. From the Folders list, select an IMAP server
    3. Click IMAP Folders
    4. From the Show/Hide IMAP Folders box, select your Sent or Sent Items folder
    5. To view the folder, click Show
