Differentiating between e-mails that come into one single mailbox.
Posted on 2008-09-30
One of our users currently has several e-mail addresses associated with her account. One of them is for a different business, as such it's important to her to be able to easily differentiate what mailbox it was intended for when the e-mails arrive, that way she can change the 'FROM:' address accordingly.
To give you an example:
User's Mailbox: Testuser
Associated e-mail accounts: Testuser@business1.com, Testuser@business2.com
When mail comes in, she has no idea whether it was destined for business1 or business2, without reading the content of the e-mail.
My recommendation was to create a seperate account and associate that with the second business, that way she can open up a second mailbox in Outlook and the two would not get confused. She does not like that idea because she is afraid she will forget about the 2nd mailbox and not check it regularly enough.
So my question, is there another way to differentiate between the e-mails as they come in?
