First I want to make sure the setting is set correctly.
In Outlook, click on the File tab.
Click on Options, and then click on Mail.
Under Save messages, enable the option Save copies of messages in the Sent Items folder.
Then send a test email and tell me please if it is now saved
Let me know the results please

option is enabled but test message not saved

Click the File tab.
Click Manage Rules & Alerts.
In the Rules and Alerts dialog box, on the E-mail Rules tab, click New Rule.
Set it as
"Apply this rule after I send the message"
"on this computer only"
"Move a copy to the Sent Items folder"
Save this and then send a test
I can also do these steps for you, and have made a request via Additional Services. This is optional, and if you choose to do this, I can, with your permission, remote into your computer while you watch and do all these steps (and deal with any problems that arise during them) for you. Or if you do not choose to take this service, we can continue here. This is no problem at all. Just let me know please.
