Can 2 separate Outlook email accounts on the same machine keep the send and received history separate?

Cindy Coppens 0 Reputation points

I currently have 2 Outlook email accounts on my computer. While I can send and receive under both accounts the history is merged. All the sent emails show in my primary inbox for sent emails. Is there a way to keep them separate? Right now the 2nd accounts sent folder is empty but I need to have that history with that account.

    Hi @Cindy Coppens ,

    Thanks for posting in our Q&A forum.

    In order to have items sent from different email accounts saved to a single folder, you could create a rule to accomplish that in each of the secondary <Sent Items> folders.

    1.create a new rule for each of the applicable Exchange accounts you want this to apply to <Apply rule to messages I send> <through the specified account>, select <move a copy to the specified folder
