Exchange 2007 Alias Email incoming recognition

Hi all,

Scenario is:

SBS2008, Exchange 2007, all latest service packs.
13 Accepted Email Domains. All work emails come in fine.
Users have at least 10 email address's each.
Only one primary or "Set As Reply" address.

 Right, what we want is to be able to see on which email address the email we receive on the "set as reply" address was actually sent to.
For example: If "set as reply" is user@workaddy1.co.uk but s/he has another email address that s/he does not need to reply on but needs to receive on how do we tell if it was actually sent to it?

At present if it is sent to user@workaddy2.com it just looks like user@workaddy1.co.uk email.

I hope that's clear enough for people to grasp the issue.

if you want to which SMTP address the message has been sent

from the outlook you know that just open the message and click on the small arrow right to options which is "message options dialog box" then go to down you will see to which SMTP address that message has been sent

if you want to know from the exchange server

then you need to check it from the message tracking

Hi There,

thanks for swift response.

We are using Outlook 2010 so not sure where you intend for us to click.

Having the users look through the Exchange tracking system is not safe as you'll probably appreciate.

Kind Regards

yes, in outlook 2010, please follow the below steps:

open the message, then click file --> info --> properties  you will see the same "the message header"

Hello again,

 yes i can see why that can work but its there no way to add a rule or simply have the alias look like the email that was sent to it?

These are office users and have no intention of performing the requested clicks.

Any other idea's?
