As an end-user, what you'll want to do is set up a rule within Microsoft Outlook.

If you're using Microsoft Outlook 2003, navigate through Tools -> Rules and Alerts -> New Rule -> Start from a blank rule -> Check messages when they arrive -> Next -> Next -> Yes -> Redirect it to people or distribution list -> click on people or distribution list and select the two mailboxes in the resulting To dialog.

Click OK and Finish and you're all set!

MEMBER FEEDBACK TO THIS ASK THE EXPERT Q&A:

After setting a rule to deliver email to two different Microsoft Outlook mailboxes, is it possible to configure this so that an email that is sent to the two mailboxes when opened/read in one mailbox, shows that it has been read/opened in the other email mailbox?

No, this is not possible. The only way to achieve this is for multiple recipients to log onto one shared mailbox.
