MessageCopyForSentAsEnabled

Can someone clarify what designed behaviour is with 2013 with regards to item of sent item when using both SEND AS and SEND ON BEHALF.

I always thought SEND AS did put the item in the sent items of the main mailbox but SENT ON BEHALF put it into the delegates sent items?

I know theres a way to set the flags to send a copy to BOTH locations but am I right in saying this only works for SHARED mailboxes?
i.e. If its a PA sending on behalf of a chief executive then the send item will go to PAs sent item,

Is there ANY way around this at all?

In my experience, default behavior is that mail is saved in the Sent Items of the sender.
No matter what type of mailbox it is.

If you set the MessageCopyForSentAsEnabled and/or MessageCopyForSendOnBehalfEnabled flag a copy will be saved in the Sent Items of the mailbox itself.
But this only works for Shared Mailboxes.
It will not work for the type "User Mailbox".

# For emails Sent As the shared mailbox: 
set-mailbox <mailbox name> -MessageCopyForSentAsEnabled $True 

# For emails Sent On Behalf of the shared mailbox: 
set-mailbox <mailbox name> -MessageCopyForSendOnBehalfEnabled $True

Even for SEND AS? I think this gets saved in the sent folder of the person you are SENDING AS. Althought I suppose in this case you are sending as that user so it makes sense.

It caused problems when users want to sent on behalf but still get the sent item in the sent items of the user they sent on behalf of. Its changed since Exchange 2007.

Users sometimes just dont get it that if it works that way I can't phone Microsoft and make them change. I did have one senior user who insisted I "had" to phone the vendor and tell them we were an important customer of theirs (ummm not really) and this had to change NOW!
