Sent email intermittently going into wrong accounts sent folder

    When I send an email from one POP3 email account, it sometimes gets put into
    the sent folder of a Hotmail account a few accounts down. The from address
    shows the from address from the first POP3 email account. Any ideas?

  2. Are these emails you are sending from one of your accounts to
    another of your WLM accounts? It is a known bug that WLM doesn't
    handle this scenario properly.

    No, they are all to other peoples email addresses not in WLM. I just sent 5
    test emails to addresses not in WLM and 2 of the 5 went into the wrong sent
    folder. When I resent both of the two they went into the right folder. Very
    strange.

  4. Sorry, I don't know why that is happening. I haven't seen that
    bug myself.

    Think I found the cause, I went to each accounts Tools > Accounts >
    Properties > General Tab and the Hotmail account had the POP3 email's
    address as the from address. I had changed it awhile back when the POP3 SMTP
    was down and forgot to change it back. After changing it and sending 5 test
    emails they all went into the correct sent folder so it must be the cause of
    the problem.
