POP3 is a retrieval system and hence Sent Items is TOTALLY NOT RELATED. Exchange should be used with Outlook (in full Exchange server mode). If you use anything else, you will lose the productivity advantages (sent items, public folders, calendar, notes etc etc)
The only thing with you can in combination with POP3, is the CC or BCC to yourself everytime you send out an email.
Alternatively, if you change to IMAP, you can set the Sent Items folder to be the server side one (watch out, default settings is the local storage).

Yes i understood that way. But some time users forget to cc or bcc by himself. Even not any power shell command will helpful?
The Exchange server is NOT AWARE OF YOU SENDING EMAILS, not magic, not powershell, no rule can help you.
Well, actually, a client side Outlook rule on outgoing email might help you. New rule > Apply this rule after I send the message (i.e. don't fill in anything, so ALL messages are being processed) > CC the message to people or distr > fill in email > save rule
Sadly, there's no BCC option.
So after setting the rule, the user can forget about using CC, it is done automatically. Has to be done per PC, per Outlook profile. Even if the user uses another PC, it has to be setup again.
