Mail client sending via SMTP on SBS 2003 exchange and storing in users Sent Items mailbox
Posted on 2009-07-14
I have setup exchange on SBS 2003 so users can access via Outlook and via Outlook Web Access. Also I have configures SMTP and POP access so users can also configure a mail client and connect to the exchange server that way too (mainly for myself)
The SMTP access is set to require basic authentication to send, i.e. username and password.
When a user sends via Outlook or Outlook Web Access then the sent email gets stored in the users mailbox under Sent Items
But when a user sends via SMTP from a mail client then the email does not get stored in the users mailbox under Sent Items. It does get stored in the mail clients Sent items but for backup and archiving purposes it would be desirable to have this also stored on the exchange sever under the users mailbox.
My question is:
Is it possible to configure exchange to store email sent from a client via SMTP in the users mailbox under Sent Items
Bearing in mind in order to send the mail they need to authenticate via there own user credentials which means exchange has a way of knowing which mailbox it should store the mail in?
Thanks in advance,
