   5.   Click OK in the E-mail Options dialog box, and again in the Options dialog box.

By default, Outlook saves a copy of every e-mail message you send in the Sent Items folder. If you don't want a copy saved, uncheck the Save Copies of Messages in Sent Items Folder check box in the E-mail Options dialog box. You might do this if you don't need these copies or you don't want to take up the disk space required to store these messages.
