Is it possible to send e-mail on behalf of another account and still have the "sent" message show up in sent items folder for the other account?

Basically what we are trying to do is be able to manage two accounts as full seperate e-mail accounts within MS Outlook 2007 using Exchange 2007. We have a group of people that need to have full access to "test" e-mail account. However, instead of using OWA each user would like to have the "test" account appear within their actual MS Outlook, be able to send, schedule meetings, and basically fully manage the mailbox as though they were the "test" user.
I have given the group Full mail access right and full Send on behalf of rights to the "test" e-mail account. I then add the account to their outlook and it shows up fine. When you send a new e-mail you have to specify "test" in the FROM field for it to appear that its coming from that account. And then after sending it, instead of the sent message showing up in the "Test" mailbox sent items folder, it appears in the person who sent it on behalf of.
Without 3rd party software or using OWA, is there a way so that you don't have to type in the test account in FROM field, and also so that the mail sent would populate into the correct sent items folder?
Im pretty sure I know the answer but I hope I am wrong and I can get some suggestions or tips for this. Thank you,
