No Send As audit events are logged when you use Send As permission in Exchange Server 2013

Assume that you enable mailbox audit logging for a shared mailbox that's delegated to you in Microsoft Exchange Server 2013. When you send an email by selecting the shared mailbox in the From field, Send As audit events aren't logged as expected. But the event ID 2005 is logged in the Event Viewer. The event ID 2005 looks something like the following:

[PROD\Mailbox server Name] PS C:\Users\Username> Get-MachineLog -EventLog Application -Target computername -Filter "*[System/EventID=2005]" | fl
