Are there ways to forward copy of emails sent from a public folder to another public folder - Exchange 2007?

I received a request from a user to forward emails sent  from a public folder 'Test' to be copied to another public folder 'Sent items' located under Test.

Root folder - Test
Sub-folder - Sent items

Exchange version - Exchange 2007
Outlook Version - 2010

There are few users who have been given 'Send As'  permission on that 'test' folder. I have created a blank rule in my outlook 2007 profile to test this, it works ok in my outlook. When I send emails from 'test' folder it automatically forwards to 'sent items' folder located under 'test'. But when other users send emails this rule doesn't work. I would assume that I have created a server rule.

I have checked order of rules by placing the rule that I created to be in the top of the list.  But no help.

Any assistance is much appreciated?

Your best option is to switch to a Shared Mailbox instead of a Public Folder.
That will allow you to keep track of the sent items as Outlook can be configured to put the sent items straight in to the relevant sent items folder.
