Is there any way to stop Newsgroup postings from being stored in the 'Sent Items' folder? I do want to keep sent e-mails, I do not want to keep sent newsgroup postings, but the 'Sent Items' folder is full of the latter, and every week or so I have to spend a good few minutes carefully deleting all these postings from this folder. A real nuisance!

Most likely you cannot exclude certain items from your sent folder.
It's either save all sent mail or configure your email to NOT save mail to the sent folder.

I thought you may have come up with the answer here but the message rules for Windows Mail do not appear to be the same as for OE. I cannot, for example, create a rule as suggested such as "Where the 'To' line contains @". There are only a few specific rules that you can set - and that isn't one of them!
I'll keep looking for an answer!
