That's the way asymmetric encryption works.
You encrypt the plain message with someones public key, but onle the owner of
the connected private key (hopefully only the receiver) can decrypt the
So if you encrypt a outgoing message with the public key of the recipient but
not with your orn public key, you will not be able read the messages you sent.
To solve this issue most email programs additionally encrypt outgoing messages
with you own public key before the message is saved in the "Sent" folder. If
you have done this, you can easily decrypt the message with your own private
key and you can read these messages afterwards
