Outgoing email Outlook settings

I want to use Outlook 2010 for sending & receiving email on several computers for 1 email account. I have selected the delivery option to "Leave a copy of messages on the server". That way I can look at all of the incoming mail on different computers via Outlook, or in a browser. However, I don't see a way to see a copy of sent emails from one computer on another computer via Outlook, or in a browser. I know I could blind carbon copy myself on every email sent, but I don't want to do that if I don't have to. 

 

Thanks in advance for your help!

Re: Outgoing email

You need to recreate the accounts on each device as IMAP rather than POP. 

 

Simplistic summary: with IMAP all mail directories remain on the server and you use a device to view and manipulate the messages there.  The view is the same on each device.

Re: Outgoing email

I changed the setting from POP to IMAP and kept the rest of the recommended settings the same. When I ran an email test, I basically get an authentication error. What are some suggested solutions? Thanks!

Re: Outgoing email

Thanks for the website link!! I finally got it working after I selected “My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication” & selected “Use same settings as my incoming mail server”. Here are the settings I used for reference: Type = IMAP, Incoming Mail = imap.mail.att.net, Port = 993, SSL, Outgoing Mail = smtp.mail.att.net, Port = 465, SSL.

Re: Outgoing email

I could not get it to work with those settings.  But, when I changed the outgoing server security to "auto" (insteade of SSL), I got the green check marks!
