Insert sent emails in conversations as well
In conversations is not possible see own sent mails. Would it be possible to add those as well
+1 to wanting my replies to show up in the conversation
In Outlook for Mac, 365 subscription, I want to get the emails I have sent within a conversation to show up in the thread automatically. I don't want to keep having to click the "show reply" button - I want to see the full conversation.
Especially when dealing with attachments, having to open a new window every time in every instance I have sent a reply wastes a lot of time!
Users need the ability to see their previous replies/sent messages as part of the conversation history.

I always do bcc to my "sent" mails so I have the mails "sent" and "received" at one place in my "inbox".
You need to establish a group so that one can sort all mails irrespective of subject line, of one email ID "received" and "sent" as a group this will help to see the entire correspondence at one place by scrolling the mails.

Supposedly this is already available in the insider fast track channel update (as of Nov 2019, based on another user's post in https://outlook.uservoice.com/forums/293343-outlook-for-mac/suggestions/8507875-expand-conversation-view-with-messages-from-send). I have asked in that thread when we might expect to see this released into the production channel.

I know this answer comes a little bit too late, but I found a quick and dirty workaround, which doesn't really interfere too much with a normal workflow.
**Just add yourself as a recipient of your own emails.**
Simple as that. You will see your own answers in the conversation mode thread, since you will *actually receive* these emails. Your name will show as the sender so it's easy to see these are actually *sent* replies.
Not ideal, but it works and it's a non-intrusive workaround while we wait for Microsoft to fix what I can only describe as an annoying bug 😛

Seriously don't understand why this isn't already a thing, especially since I think PCs can already do it.
Supposed this is being "Worked on" . See this idea:

Is there an ETA for when this will be available on Outlook for Mac?
I second this. Not being able to see sent messages in "conversations" view adds lots of email searching and wasted time to my work flow. Please fix!

This is so fundamental, I can't believe Outlook for Mac doesn't do this. It's not a conversation view if it doesn't include all the participants in the conversation!
Yes, this feature is a basic way of working in Windows and was existing in Outlook for Mac before. Since some years that desappeared... and it is very uncomfortable to work easily and correctly.
Please work rapidly to add (restore) this evident and needed functionality.

This is an essential feature for any email thread. Seeing only one side of the conversation makes no sense and makes the 'conversations' view practically useless. Please add this feature
Of course it is necessary. How come this is not in place in 2019? Unbelievable...
Yes please! This feature makes outlook seem SUPER antiquated, especially when compared to Gmail.
To Include sent emails in the conversation grouping of emails.
Still waiting for updates.
Please release this feature asap
