CreateObject("CDO.Message") Do not keep a copy in sent items

CreateObject("CDO.Message") Do not keep a copy in sent items

(OP)
Hello. I'm using CDO.Message to distribute auto reports. My email sent folder over time becomes too large and I have to go in and delete old messages. I was wondering if there is a .item that instructs the e-mail server not to store a copy of the e-mail being sent.

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

RE: CreateObject("CDO.Message") Do not keep a copy in sent items

Just for clarity: whicvh version of CDO, what it talking to, and what is your email server?

if CDOSYS (i.e. CDO For Windows 2000) then it only really speaks SMTP, and SMTP doesn't have any way of handling sent item folders on the email server

Hi. I don't have to set any references, so I believe it's CDO for Windows 2000. Server is Gmail.

Thank you.

Ok, so yes, you are talking via SMTP. And so, unfortunately, there is no way to telll gmail to not store a copy of the e-mail being sent

Thanks for the help anyway. I'm not married to the code I'm using, so if there is an alternative that supports this, I would certainly try it. If you have a suggestion I would appreciate it, I will give google a try also.

Thanks!
