Outlook does not have a dedicated “Send and Archive” button similar to what you might find in other email services like Gmail. However, you can manually Archive emails after sending them.

For Microsoft 365, Outlook.com, and Exchange accounts, the Archive folder is one of Outlook’s default folders, and you can use the Archive button to move messages to this folder. While it’s not a one-click solution like a “Send and Archive“, it can help you manage your sent emails more efficiently.

If you’re looking to streamline your email management, you might consider using Quick Steps in Outlook. Quick Steps allow you to create automated actions for frequent tasks, which could include archiving emails after sending them.

For more detailed instructions on archiving emails or setting up Quick Steps, you can refer to the official Microsoft Support page.

Organizing emails by thread arranges your messages into conversational threads based on the subject of the emails. In short, it combines messages with matching subject lines into one email.

Some users find this feature convenient, others find it difficult to locate emails quickly as it automatically collapses the content into a conversational thread. As a result, some users find that they end up missing important messages.

Likely we can quickly and easily change this option and revert back to the traditional way of handling emails. This article will show you how to turn off the organize emails by thread option in Outlook on mobile.
