You can't directly..  When you send an email, the message will go into your sent items folder.  Now, you might be able to set up a rule to forward those items to the person you are sending on behalf of, and then have a rule on their mailbox to move those items to their sent items folder.

Sending on behalf has to be done by the Exchange admin.

Dropping email that you sent on his behalf in his sent items must be done with a regedit. However, I've seen Outlook behave weirdly with this (you need to press F9 a few times per day, otherwise you "think" some emails are stuck in Outbox, while they are, the email WAS already received by the other party).
Regedit for Outlook 2010 (other versions similar, but not 100% the same):

•         HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Outlook\Preferences

•         On the Edit menu, point to New , and then click DWORD Value .

•         Type DelegateSentItemsStyle , and then press ENTER.

•         Right-click DelegateSentItemsStyle , and then click Modify .

•         In the Value data box, type 1 , and then click OK .

•         Exit Registry Editor.

How did you "mount" the mailbox? Is it a separate Exchange account, or a shared one assigned to your main account? If the former, sent mails are automatically stored in the correct mailbox. For the latter, a rule moving the mail on send should work, but I'm not 100% positive.

There are 2 ways to accomplish this. First what Outlook version are you using and what Exchange version are you using?

First Option
Attach this mailbox as an addtional ACCOUNT within Outlook (not an ADDITIONAL mailbox)
*this requires Outlook 2010 and you can have up to 5 mailboxes in the same Outlook profile

Second Option
Use the Set-MailboxSentItemsConfiguration cmdlet to set the additional mailbox sent items respectively
*this requires you to have Exchange 2010 SP3 in order to take advantage of this cmdlet

Add additional Account to Outlook 2010 (and up)
