Depending on the server and server settings the outbound mail may or may not be retained on the server.  Again, depending on the server and the server settings you may not have a workaround other than cc'ing the sender.

In these I use the SMTPSend() command to send email, and it works fine.  When I test, using various of my own email accounts, whatever I send in Omnis shows up in my Sent folder in Apple Mail.  All my email accounts use IMAP.  Some use Gmail, others use IMAP accounts through a web hosting company I use.

We know it gets sent, but there are times when it would be good to have the sent email saved with their other sent emails.  One client says they have an Exchange Server in house, another is part of a University so I don’t know what’s going on there.
