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!
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.
