outlook - multiple mailboxes where a rule can place the sent item in the correct sent item folder

Posted on 2010-01-05

I have 2 mailboxes, where I have successfully added it to my outlook exchange account. I can read the inbox, and I can reply successfully from the 2nd mailbox. However, when i reply from the 2nd mailbox, instead of the item being put into the 2nd mailbox sent items folder, it actually goes into the 1st mailbox sent items folder. The email address it replies from is the 2nd mailbox which is correct, but how can i get the sent items to be put into the 2nd mailbox?

I need it to be put into the 2nd mailbox sent items folder because that 2nd mailbox will be shared with multiple users and if someone uses the 2nd mailbox and replies, then it should show in the sent items folder in the 2nd mailbox so everyone can see what is being sent.

I think this is an outlook issue, but maybe something that might be accomplished through exchange?

    This is normal behaviour in Outlook....I would be looking at UniSent utility here:

    Workaround is to make another Outlook profile with other mailbox as primary to be used when wanting to "send as" that other address. :-) !

    @Fayaz - what you have suggested it Manual Move, that is what our friend does not want to do :-) ! That he would still be doing in any case....

    In such a scenario, I would recommend creating some Macro in Outlook that will move mails, since even Unisent also does same thing. If you can get hold of someone to do it for you. Refer:
