Exchange 2010 multiple domains

I have exchange 2010 and for a long time had only one domain.  We will say domain1.com.  We created a new shell company within our organization and added the new domain2.com to exchange.  Now the way i went about setting this up was creating new mail boxes and giving the first user rights to view the mail box with the other address. I should also note that I made new users adding 1 after the username.  the user will never log in with this, but that was the way I was able to create the mailbox. For example, paul@domain1.com has rights to view Paul@domain2.com. Then in his outlook he can view both boxes and send from either one via the send as right.  The reasons I have separate mail boxes was at some point I may need to export from a certain company. It was important to my boss to have separate contacts and calendars. Anyways everything is working as it should. the user can send out from either address. The only issue is the sent items always show up in the domain1.com mailbox.  Is there a way when doing a send as to place in domain2.com mailbox? If not, what steps should I take to make this happen?

Hi, you can create a rule to check the message after sending and any message sent from domain2.com you can move to the sent items in domain2 mailbox.

I've not actually tried this but if I was in your situation it's the first thing I would look at.

the way around this is using Outlook 2010 and set it to open both accounts as exchange accounts sent items will be separated

I have outlook 2010 and it is working correctly, sadly most users still have 2003. I will get back and try the rules.

I don't seem to be able to create a rule from a certain address... Is that because it assumes you only have one? Any way still an open issue in regards to the 2003 outlook Clients.

I actually checked this on Outlook 2003 before I posted and there is a rule option that's allows you to base the rule on a specific account ?

Since they are both Microsoft exchange accounts, It doesn't allow me in the drop down to select one of the specific accounts. Am I missing an option?

in my memory it won't work based on rules but I might be mistaken

I am saying this because this was one of the long waited features of outlook 2010

another option, that I wouldn't recommend, is to configure the second account as pop/smtp in outlook

This is the best answer as to why not, but doesn't fix my problem without upgrading.

this is a work around

Configure 1st account as exchange
configure 2nd account as IMAP

You will have separate sent items and inbox for those.
