I am new to Apple and used Outlook on a PC before. In that program I could select options and indicate whether I wanted the email save in the sent file or not. I haven't been able to figure this out in Mail. I appreciate your help.

iBook G4, Mac OS X (10.4.3)

    You have one option for the location to save Sent messages. In the account's Sent mailbox. If a POP type account, the account's Sent mailbox will be available under Sent in the mailboxes drawer. If a .Mac or IMAP type account and you chose to store sent messages on the server, the account's Sent mailbox will be available under the .Mac or IMAP account's icon in the mailboxes drawer.

    You can utilize user created "On My Mac" mailboxes to sort sent (and received) messages by category and with Tiger Mail, you can use Smart Mailboxes (which are virtual mailboxes only) based on chosen criteria.

    Thank you for your response. I am seeking to select individual emails that I create to be saved, not just a blanket command that they all be saved. My concern is not so much the location, but being able to identify which emails are saved.
    Does your response mean this is not possible?
    Thank you all again.
