That does not make sense to me.  If you have a .PST file, chances are you've got outlook configured using POP3.

If that is so, when you "POP" the email from the server to the workstation.. it does exactly that.  

OWA will let you view the contents of your Exchange stored items - not the items stored in a .PST file on a workstation.

The fix is -- re-configure your Outlook client to use "Exchange Server" account type, not POP3.  Then -- import the contents of your .PST back into Exchange.

Make any sense?

You can drag and drop messages from the SENT ITEMS folder of the mailbox to the SENT ITEMS folder of the PST file.
