Hi KalluMama,
>  i have not had a look at it, but i could not this of a cause for this problem..

most likely he must have set some kind of rules.
If you get access to his machine , open outlook
go to tools --> rules wizard and check for any rules there.

STop all the rules and see if that would help

Instead of Sent Items it goes to Inbox?

Do a spyware and virus scan on this system to verify that it is clean.  There is also a selector that will allow you to select where to store a copy of sent items.  I am back on OL2002 right now so I can't tell you exactly where that is but maybe it has been changed.
