MailItem.Save Location RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I use a macro to create some mail in Outlook 2010 (Version 14.0.7128.5000). The macro functions properly, except the mailitem.save command currently creates a mailitem in the Drafts folder of a dead account that had previously been the default. I changed the default account several weeks ago in Account Settings (and can see the checkmark on the new account), but can't find anything that could be confusing Outlook.

    Is there a registry setting that needs to be reset?
    And while I’m at it,
    Is there a way in the macro to dictate which account the mailitem should land in?

    Thank you for any help you can offer.

    Pete

  • mailitem.save does indeed save in the default drafts folder. That is by design. If you want a message to be saved somewhere else, then having saved it to the drafts folder you need to move it to your folder of choice.

  • Thanks Graham, but I think you missed the gist of my issue: it is saving in a defunct account rather than the new default. Do you know if there is a registry setting for Outlook that I can reset?
