How do I create a Rule to move incoming mail to one of my email addresses to a specific folder?

How do I create a Rule to move incoming mail to one of my email addresses to a specific folder?   Eg. So that all messages sent to President@mydomain are automatically placed in a folder.

I can do it for a rule for 'sent only to me' or 'where my name is in the To box' but what does that mean when I have multiple email addresses?

Thanks in advance.

If you are trying to do this on the Outlook 2003 client then you would create the folder, go to Tools, then "Rules and Alerts" and click on "New Rule...". You would then click on "Check messages when they arrive" under "Start from a blank rule". Click next, and check "With specific words in the recipient's address". Click on "specific words" and enter the e-mail address in question and click next.

Now check the "move it to the specified folder", click on specified folder and choose finish.

That should work for you.

Really? It seems you are forgot the address resolving. If John Doe has a mailbox with a primary SMTP address of john.doe@company.com and secondary SMTP address of johnd@company.com. As Outlook always resolves both SMTP addresses to a mailbox name, there is no way to see what address the message was originally sent to.

Sure there is.

The "recipients address" field is heald in the header of the message no matter if address resolution is taking place. If I address an e-mail to johnd@company.com, even though it resolves to the same username as john.doe@company.com that information is still heald in the header of the e-mail message.

Actually, I digress. You are correct.

One thing you could do without download a seperate program would be to create a new user that has the President@Company.com e-mail address associated with it, and then set up the properties of the user in Active Directory to forward all messages to your other e-mail.

That way you can set up a rule that says that all e-mail sent from President@Company.com go to Folder A.

Yes, that works.  It is one specific address I want to trap.
