  • For automatically sent emails, do they show up in the Sent Items folder?

    Automatic emails will go through the normal process of an e-mail. The HP scanning application will only "grab" the scanned document and attached it automatically in to your Outlook New message (just like a manual process would do). All emails sent will appear in the Sent Items folder.
