Use the Get-MailboxSentItemsConfiguration cmdlet to view the Sent Items settings for mailboxes in your organization.


Get-MailboxSentItemsConfiguration -Identity <MailboxIdParameter> [-DomainController <Fqdn>]

Detailed Description

When a user sends a message as or on behalf of another user, the message is saved in that user's Sent Items folder by default. Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 Service Pack 3 (SP3) introduces the ability to have such messages also be copied to the Sent Items folder of the mailbox on behalf of which the message was sent. For example, consider a shared mailbox that is used to receive customer feedback that is monitored by multiple users. If a user responds to one of the messages in this shared mailbox, using the new feature in Exchange Server 2010 SP3, the response message is recorded not only on the user's Sent Items folder, but also on the Sent Items folder of the shared mailbox.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can run this cmdlet. Although all parameters for this cmdlet are listed in this topic, you may not have access to some parameters if they're not included in the permissions assigned to you. To see what permissions you need, see the "Folder Management" entry in the Mailbox Permissions topic.
