What you have above is the correct behavior.
The benefit that will be missed if you move to sending with outlook and BCC salesforce will be that you will lose the open and click data, as well as any scoring programs that update based on "opening" or "clicking" sales emails.
If many of the responses are similar in nature, you could build templated responses and review them for spelling errors beforehand. This would reduce the likelihood of sales making typos.
IMHO, opens and clicks aren't as valuable as other activities so losing the scoring won't be a big deal. If sales really wants visibility to who opens their emails, then you can go with the template option, or possibly buy another tool to add to your stack. Some of the sales automation tools (like Yesware) have Marketo plugins that can connect with your reporting.
Thanks Darrell! We're also looking at tools outside of MSI to record in Salesforce all email activity outside of Marketo-sent email (we would continue using MSI for that). I'm digging around other threads here for candidates. If you have any that are top of mind please let me know!
