That correct.

This is the designed behvior in Outlook 2007
It can only handle 1 Mailbox (Exchange or POP) as the default mailbox
If using both an Exchange Mailbox and an POP Mailbox, the Exchage is alwasy going to be the default.

You cannot change this behavior in OUtlook 2007 or earlier.

What you can do is, Upgrade your Office Suite to 2010
Outlook 2010 now allows for multiple fully functioning Mailboxes

Once upgraded to 2010, dont add the mailbox as an additional mailbox
Close Outlook, go to Control Panel, Mail
Open Mail Accounts
You will see your inital Exchange Mailbox,
Now choose NEW, Email Account, Manually Configure, Exchange Account

Now setup the account as you would any normal exchange account

Once done, open outlook
You will see the two account on the left just as above
However, they will both be fully functioning exchange accounts with their Sent items going into the appropriate sent items
