    What's the difference?

    I just sent email from my W8 tablet and it's in the Outbox. That's the only email there. But Sent has all previous emails I've sent

    It's similar how a printer spools documents so if your sending multiple emails they queue up in the the outbox. The process is essentially like this

    • Once the server acknowledges the request & authenticates said request
    • Data is sent to the mail server from client (your tablet)
    • Once the data gets sent completely it is moved to your sent items.


    Basically the out box is the digital version of the out-tray (mail ready to be sent out) and the inbox the digital version of the in-tray (received mail).

    In laymen terms, this how the outlook desktop app behaves and therefore the app mimics this behavior thus is completely normal.

    Outbox means pending. Sent box means it was already delivered.
