I believe this only happens when the e-mail originates from internally via Outlook/OWA - i.e., via MAPI.  If Exchange receives the message via MAPI, it is not yet an Internet-formatted e-mail and is instead stored according to MS' own internal formats.  Only at POP3 collection does the Internet message headers become formed and by this time the recipient's primary e-mail address is given to the To: field, not the alias.

This is known issue with Exchange 2007.  Please see the below MS article for the same.

There is a bug in exchange 2007 and behavior changes from e2k3 to e2k7: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en/exchangesvrtransport/thread/e4fd7752-e009-4224-bfc8-e7e328ea9fcf
