I just started using Outlook. I was previously using Eudora.

When I started up Outlook and sent message for the first time, all my sent
messages are going to a folder called "Sent Items-may-2002" I didn't create
this folder. It was there when I first started Outlook. WHY DON'T THE
MESSAGES GO TO "SENT ITEMS"?

The stupid program won't let me delete or rename "Sent Items-may-2002"
although it did let me rename or delete "Sent Items".

Outlook 2003 SP2

Try starting Outlook once with the /resetfoldernames command line switch.
What type of account are you using? SMTP/POP, Exchange, or IMAP?

I'm using Exchange, if I understand it correctly.
