Sent Office 365 Deleted Item Shared Mailbox

Hello,

By default, with Office 365 ProPlus (2013 and 2016 for sure), when you send/delete a mail from a shared mailbox on which you have delegation on it, those items go into your ‘Sent Items’ and ‘Deleted Items’ in your mailbox, and not in the delegate’s one.

This is editable, indeed, for a better collaboration, you may want to store those mails in the shared mailbox, for everyone to see them. You have two solutions to do this, you can do it manually for one computer with two registry keys, or you can create a GPO to target a lot more computers.
