How to force sent emails to land in a 'Sent items' folder on a second account connected to the Outlook profile


I have a problem here and I have  been unable to find an answer to it on the Internet. Basically, I have a user who has full access permissions to, let's say,, and also send-as permissions to this email account. So, her Outlook has 2 email accounts visible when she opens Outlook: and We are using Exchange and a mix of different email clients: Outlook 2007, 2010 and 2013. The user would like to be able to send as, so that all the sent emails land in the 'Sent items' folder and not in her primary one. Is it possible to achieve this?

Thank you in advance.

Best regards,

It is not possible to do it since in Exchange there is no direct access for user to other user Mailbox.
You can assign permissions or delegate mailbox but you can own 2 mailboxes by one account so creating rule on Exchange or in Outlook is not possible.

Using exchange command shell

Get-Mailbox | Set-mailbox -MessageCopyForSentAsEnabled  $True

Email will appear as being sent from whichever mailbox was active when the message was sent. In other words, to make the message appear to be sent from HR and a copy to go in the HR Sent Items folder, she would have to have a profile open to the HR mailbox before sending the email.

Adding to my previous comment.  In your outlook client example Outlook 2010,- New Email, at the top click options, make sure you add the From button to your outlook.  Now click the drop down arrow from the from button>add another email address and and your email.  You can now toggle between which emails you are sending from.  To ensure that the emails sent  from land in it's own sent items run the command I gave you via Exchange management shell

Get-Mailbox | Set-mailbox -MessageCopyForSentAsEnabled  $True
