    I use Outlook mainly for emailing. Sometimes, I am forced to write email from web page (for example, for tech support). After hitting the SENT button, I have no idea whether the email was was sent or not. Does anybody know how?

    Check your message in the Sent folder.

    Ah, I see what you mean - sending through outlook from a web link, right?

    No. My question does not involve Outlook. In most of webpages (mainly for emailing for tech support or other customer support) which I dealt with have SUBMIT button but not SENT box. Unless I receive confirmation email from the webpage owners, I have no idea whether the email was sent or the other party did not receive.

    Ok, I see. I too occasionally use those web forms for customer support and feedback. If I get no error pop-up when I click, I take it was sent for sure. Sometimes I get "Thank you for sending your feedback". If you're much in doubt, you can submit it twice.
