Symptoms

Consider the following scenario:
  • You configure the DelegateSentItemsStyle registry entry for Microsoft Office Outlook 2007.

    To do this, you set the DWORD value of the following registry key to 1:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Outlook\Preferences\DelegateSentItemsStyle
  • You open a shared mailbox as an additional mailbox in Outlook 2007.
In this scenario, when you send an e-mail message from the shared mailbox, the message is sent successfully. However, the sent message is not saved in the Sent Items folder of the shared mailbox.

Resolution

Important This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs.

    Let me fix it myself

    To do this, follow these steps:
    1. Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
    2. Locate and then click the following registry subkey:
      HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Outlook\Preferences
    3. On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click DWORD Value.
    4. Type DelegateSentItemsStyle, and then press ENTER.
    5. Right-click DelegateSentItemsStyle, and then click Modify.
    6. In the Value data box, type 1, and then click OK.
    7. Exit Registry Editor.
Important After you set the DelegateSentItemsStyle registry value to 1, the functionality is only available when the Microsoft Exchange account is set to Use Cached Exchange Mode. The DelegateSentItemsStyle registry value will not work consistently on an Exchange account that is configured in Online mode. For more information about enabling Use Cached Exchange Mode, see the following Microsoft Office support article:

http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook-help/redir/HP001232935.aspx?queryid=cde1b9af5cc1430a8e0adaafea0c67aa&respos=0&CTT=1 (http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook-help/redir/HP001232935.aspx?queryid=cde1b9af5cc1430a8e0adaafea0c67aa&respos=0&CTT=1)
Note If you must use Outlook in Online mode and if your mailbox is located on an Exchange Server 2010 server, the Exchange administrator can configure similar behavior on the server. Update Rollup 4 for Exchange Server 2010 Service Pack 2 introduces a new Exchange PowerShell cmdlet to configure which Sent Items folder a message is copied to. Because this new feature is handled by the Exchange server, Outlook can be configured for either Online or Cached Exchange mode. However, the Exchange server feature only works if the Outlook DelegateSentItemsStyle registry value is disabled..

For more information about the Set-MailboxSentItemsConfiguration cmdlet, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
2632409  (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2632409/ ) Messages sent by using the "Send As" and "Send on behalf" permissions are only copied to the Sent Items folder of the sender in an Exchange Server 2010 environment
