Assume that you're using Microsoft Outlook 2010 in Office 365, and you've been delegated permission to send email messages on behalf of another user from a shared mailbox. However, when you send a message on behalf of the user, the sent message isn't saved to the Sent Items folder of the shared mailbox. Instead, it's saved to the Sent Items folder of your mailbox.
In Office 365, shared mailboxes don't require a license and can't be added to Outlook 2010 as an independent mailbox. You can't sign in to a shared mailbox. Instead, you sign in to your own mailbox and then open the shared mailbox. When you send or reply to a new message from the shared mailbox, Outlook automatically sends or replies from the sender's account. Therefore, messages are stored in the Sent Items folder of the sender's mailbox.
