Environment - Exchange 2010 Sp2  Roll up 4   (Migrated from Exchange 2003)
                        Client - Outlook 2003

User X is sending on behalf of User Y and wants the sent mails to be saved in the sent items folder of User Y

I know there is a registry key which can be applied for outlook 2003 to achieve this but i am trying not to venture in that direction. I also found in Exchange 2010 in OWA there is a Sent Items Option under settings which lets you choose the following

- Messages sent on behalf of this mailbox will appear in the Sent Items folder of the:

under this I chose "From Mailbox" and saved changes for user Y.

This however has made no change whatsoever and sent items are still being saved under user X sent items folder.

Can anyone advise if i am missing something and why the Sent Items Options are not working as its meant to?

Any help is appreciated

I don't think you will able to save the Sent Items on User Y. If you would to do maybe you use the Outlook rule.

When you send an e-mail message from a shared mailbox in Outlook 2007, the sent message is not saved in the Sent Items folder of the shared mailbox

yes, that is the limitation of a shared mailbox, you may want to create a rule to save a copy of sent emails.

So can someone advise what does the Sent Items Option in OWA is meant to do?
It does give the option to save sent items if mail is send as or send on behalf.

Has anyone used it before?
