This problem occurs when all the following conditions are true:
- Your Outlook profile is configured in Onlinemode (not cached Exchange mode).
- You have the DelegateSentItemsStyle registry value set to 1.
Serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly by using Registry Editor or by using another method. These problems might require that you reinstall the operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that these problems can be solved. Modify the registry at your own risk.
There is no resolution to this problem except to either switch your profile to cached Exchange mode or set the DelegateSentItemsStyle
registry value to zero (0). Additionally, if your mailbox is located on Microsoft Exchange Server 2010, the Exchange administrator can configure similar behavior on the server.Note
: if you set DelegateSentItemsStyle=0 in the registry, email messages that you send from a shared mailbox will be copied to your
Sent Items folder and not the Sent Items folder of the shared mailbox.
- Change the value of DelegateSentItemsStyle to 0 in the registry
Follow these steps to change the value of DelegateSentItemsStyle to 0 in the registry.

Update Rollup 4 for Exchange Server 2010 Service Pack 2 introduces a new Exchange PowerShell commandlet 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 Online or Cached Exchange Mode. However, the Exchange server feature only works if the Outlook DelegateSentItemsStyle registry value is disabled.
