Prevent a send item

Is it possible to turn off Sent Item creation on a particular email address?

I send emails to myself to remind me to do things. So the From and To email address are the same. I noticed under Identities & Fetch, the save option could be disabled, but I want it to be for specific to the From and To address. I don't want to change the default from address.

Rules won't work as that will only apply to email I receive, not the email I receive.

Thanks, just curious

Peter

How about just setting up a special Identity (called, perhaps, 'Reminder') and using that when you want to send to yourself with no copy in Sent Items?

Note that the From address of this Identity can be the same as a From address previously used in another Identity should you so desire, though you may want to use a different address to facilitate the message being filed into a folder 'Reminders' on receipt.

Thanks you are talking about "Identities & Fetch" right? Is there anyway to control the sort order on the from address drop down?

Thanks

I send email like that, too...

configuration instructions, links to videos or websites to view later on another machine, reminders, etc.

I don't have a solution to the "Send Items" auto-create, but I propose consideration of a workaround:

-write the email
-save it as a draft
-do not send it
-move it from "Drafts" to the folder where you want it, including Inbox if need be.

As I recall (I have not double checked) the order is alphabetic, by Identity name. If my recollection is right, you can just use a prefix (maybe even a number) to control the order.

It seems to be ordered in a strange manner. I tried adding a new identity/fetch with a number to start and it is not at the top.
