Automatically file Outlook Sent Items to a folder

A commenter on one of my other macros requested this functionality.

Whenever you send an e-mail in Outlook have it prompt you if you want it filed in a folder other than the default Sent Items folder.
Here it is.

Two caveats:
I’m assuming that you are using the default Sent Items folder.
You will have to edit the code to point it to the folder you wish to use.


First you have to define the event handler to monitor your sent items folder.

Now you have to add a routine to handle it.

I have a “ToDo” folder in my Personal Folders mailbox (the leading underscores are simply to “help” the sorting in the default view.

It’s this arcFolder location that you will have to adjust to your own required location.
