At my office we have 3 Windows PC's running XP Pro sp2 and Office Pro 2003. Most of the office uses Macs so that is what I am used to supporting. Our email is on a POP3/IMAP Linux server. We do not use Exchange or AD or push out any kind of GPO.
When I set up the PC employees with their IMAP account using Outlook 2003 it won't save sent emails in the IMAP sent mail folder, even though I subscribed to it and it is visible in the folder pane. The sent emails are saved in the pst folder. I haven't been able to find any setting to change this.
As an add on question, is there a way to remove the pst file completely? There's no reason for the file to be there and in earlier versions of Outlook the file wasn't automatically created. I tried to remove the file from the local folders path but it reappeared when I restarted Outlook.
